Though educational trips are of many different kinds, let us give you an idea about our favourite – The Renok Leadership Trekking Programme. We believe that outdoors are the perfect setting to provide students with leadership skills. This program allows students to practice leadership skills while exploring a new destination.
Expectations For Our Educational Trips
Our trainers and support staff use an experiential learning model, which has been developed by David Kolb, a renowned American educational philosopher. Every day, the trainer gives more responsibility to the participants. This makes them comfortable with decision-making processes, allows them to learn from mistakes and reflect on different outcomes.
Among the numerous educational trip benefits, learning the decision-making process is the most important. Most participants are given small choices to make in the beginning of the trip. These may include things like timings for the break on hiking, choice of rest stop etc. By the end of the trip, participants are taking important decisions like executing and mapping out an off-trail excursion.
One of the most important benefits of educational trips is that participants need to focus on consequential leadership and knowledge building. They are able to learn from their own mistakes. We have divided the program into different phases, including:
- Concrete Experience – An entirely new experience or a reinterpretation of an existing experience
- Reflective Observation – Observing nuances and benefits of experiences
- Abstract Conceptualization – Ideation and modification of existing concepts
- Active Experimentation – Experimenting with new learning and experiences in real-world scenarios
Renok Adventures has been organising educational trips for quite some time. We’ve taken several schools on educational and field trips to help students learn about different leadership practices, while letting them explore new places.
