11 p. 
Summary

Points on teaching students to be creative, practical techniques used to help creativity flourish, and the role of creativity in learning in the outdoor classroom are explored. Suggestions for encouraging creativity in the outdoors to occur are: to make use of the ample assortment of ways the outdoor environment can stimulate each student; to place students in environments which are conducive to creative thinking and responses; to provide a variety of media through which a student can express learning which is taking place in the outdoors; and to supply students with experiences which will increase their observations and examination abilities. Other suggestions include: eliminating a number of factors which can stifle a student's creative nature; using learning situations in outdoor education which require the student to be a more involved, independent, and responsible learner; handling the area of evaluation carefully; and leading students to synthesize as well as analyze.
