The study of the environment is multidisciplinary in nature which not only requires individuals to acquire knowledge of; but also to foster a concern about the environment and its allied problems, that in turn would, hopefully, trigger pro-environmental actions. In this discipline, learning “in the field” is of fundamental significance because the spatial scale of many environmental phenomena, processes and issues extend well beyond that of traditional indoor venues such as classroom and laboratory. In this presentation, we will use two case studies to illustrate the design and implementation of field trips and the related learning activities in the teaching of environment-related subjects.
