EQ in Outdoor Education

Outdoor education and EQ are a natural fit, bringing clarity to the concept of personal development. Our approach integrates emotional intelligence with experiential learning, using an EQ curriculum and tools to design and deliver focused outcomes.

We work closely with schools and teachers to choose relevant and meaningful social and emotional learning outcomes. Instead of general goals like expanding comfort zones, we look at connecting outcomes + objectives + EQ competencies, for example linking dealing with adversity, increasing personal resilience, and exercising optimism.

Approach

Outcome

Behaviors we want to see by the end of the course

Objective

Specific knowledge, attributes and skills

Competency

Fundamental Emotional Intelligence skill

This approach identifies a clear purpose and provides direction

Dragonfly’s trainers have clear goals that direct lesson planning, feedback and reflection. Schools and parents have clear expectations and can follow up a course with guided questions.

Courses use EQ measurements

Each student completes an online EQ assessment. These are then consolidated by activity group in a dashboard, creating a picture of the group identity, strengths and areas for development.
