OV's Annual Education Outdoors Conference


The Education Outdoor Conference is a major annual event that provides professional learning for teachers, educators and students within the Outdoor Education sector.

The Dr Brian Nettleton Lecture

Created by OV in 2018 to honour Dr Brian Nettleton, who passed away in 2017.

Brian was a pioneer of Outdoor Education and place-based experiences in Australia. His active engagement in the field had a remarkable influence on the journey of Outdoor Education in Victoria and inspired and supported many Outdoor Education professionals who have continued to think, teach and write in ways he helped establish.
