Challenge Course Group Information

Full Value Contract
Effective learning occurs in an environment where what is learned can be put into practice and the learner can receive accurate feedback and reinforcement. An essential component for learning is a person’s conscious decision to achieve some particular goal during the group experience. By using a goal setting process and developing individual personal action plans, groups members are helped to define what they want to achieve, how they are going to accomplish this and what evidence will serve to demonstrate that they have achieved a specific goal. The full value contract asks for the following commitments and presumes specific expectations for all group members and facilitators. Read More
