Abstract

In recent years, there have been growing bodies of research in an outdoor education setting. In the context of landscape architecture studies, the need to encourage the students to explore the nature is undeniably important. By exploring the landscapes, a better perspective and understanding of subject matter can be achieved. While there is a new approach of learning called as online learning, however, the actual experiential learning is still valuable and authentic to be studied. Through the literature findings and data analysis, the student learning expectations in this study are influenced by the physical outdoor setting and learning activities.

Keywords: outdoor learning; plant identification, student expectation, learning activities
