(Core Competency #1: Risk Management Technical Skills) This session will introduce risk management theories and methods used in experiential and adventure-based education. Presenters will discuss how risk management is different in these two settings and how to effectively address issues in these contexts. Attendees also will learn risk management techniques and concepts that can be applied to outdoor programs or affiliate organization programs taking place on their campuses. This session will be interactive and will involve opportunities for discussion and application of the ideas presented.

As a result of participating in this session, attendees will:

+ Learn about pedagogies and frameworks related to experiential and adventure-based education
+ Explore differences in institutional risk management practices for an adventure-based academic program, co-curricular trips program, and on-campus challenge course
+ Examine ways to integrate this information into their professional practice and with colleagues on their home campuses
