Practical learning for pupils - high rope course in South Tyrol
 

Team training including cooperative activities and games as well as high rope climbing in the Adventure Park "Enzwaldile" ('forest of the Ents')

Our teaching programmes address key qualifications such cooperative and communicative skills as well as the ability to deal with conflict. We focus on mutual respect and working together. Furthermore, pupils will learn how to face new, unusual and challenging situations. In small groups, they will have to solve different tasks in a team learning experience. We believe in the holistic approach of learning with one's head, heart and hand. All three components are necessary for students to successfully complete the tasks set to them. After each round, the tasks will be discussed and analysed. These short feedback sessions are guided by a team of experienced experiential teachers.

Get rid of your dog-eat-dog philosophy and ready for togetherness. Our adventure programme aims at enhancing students' ability to work in a team, their helpfulness and mutual consideration.

Only teams as thick as thieves will be able to achieve their goal.

Well-equipped with GPS and maps, your students will start off into nature in small groups. Who will take on responsibility for what? Who will assert himself/herself and take over the group? Who will be able to do best, and which team will be able to cross the finish line first?

Aerial runway, building a zip line

Aerial runway, building a zip line

Half-day event
There is not always a bridge when we need to get to the other side. So we build one to cross a gorge. Or we build an aerial runway. For this project, creativity, resourcefulness and, most of all, teamwork are required. Without these skills, succeeding is impossible. In the end, there will be only one question left: Who's going first?
