Using the Outdoors as Your Classroom: Ithaca College Natural Lands

Ithaca College has more than 400 acres of natural lands (ICNL) within walking distance of the built campus. All of this land is at your disposal for teaching your courses. In light of calls across higher education for active inquiry, experiential learning, and learning by doing, not to mention the IC 20/20 imperatives for place-based curriculum and interdisciplinary integration, there has never been a better time to consider taking your students outside.  View Power-point presentation of ICNL.
