Time is not out, rather the opposite, when it comes to landscape teaching. Based on thirty years of experience in outdoor teaching and a course in the Blekinge archipelago, we know that in landscape teaching it is essential to leave the lecture theatre occasionally, join the ‘real world’ and experience the particular essence of outdoor learning by action or ‘doing’. As one student said:

After the days out in the archipelago with hands-on work, it will be very hard to go back indoors at the university. But that is the way it is. We need the theory to be able to do professional practical work.
