Goals of the AJOE
The uniqueness of AJOE is its ability to meet the needs of a wide cross section of readers whether they be classroom teachers, academics or practitioners in the field. The AJOE attempts to provide clear links between theory, research and practice.
Therefore our goals are to:
Provide balanced and in-depth investigation of outdoor education practices and theories in a variety of educational and recreational contexts.
Enhance understanding of outdoor education and recreation issues in relation to their wider educational, recreational and social contexts.
Help readers keep abreast of current outdoor education research.
Examine and present research with a view as to how it might be implemented for classroom teachers and practitioners as researchers.
Provide a forum in which outdoor education and outdoor recreation professionals from all settings can exchange and discuss ideas and practices relevant to their work.
