Some of Virginija´s words on the seminar are as following:
"The course consisted from several main topics: team work, team formation, development of outdoor education ideas, organisation of various activities outdoors, as well as ways how integrate and transfer the topics that pupils learn indoor into the outdoor environment in order to encourage children to stay, act, and learn outdoor as much as possible, and to stimulate teachers‘ creative attitude towards educational process through making it more diverse with adding new methods, tools, and experience. Experience gained during the already completed projects was also shared, we have visited the educational institutions, observed and actively participated in practical activities."
