Abstract [en]

The study is phenomenographic and describes 15 expert professors’ conceptions of the importance of the place for learning and teaching in an outdoor pedagogical context. Five qualitatively different categories express the outcome, namely the possibility to: discover and develop place-related propositions of sense, develop a physical, sensuous relation to various occurrences/phenomena, develop a personal relationship to the landscape, develop knowledge through familiarity and develop a wider understanding of society and environment. In a school-related context one finds conceptions with the focus on propositions of meaning and relationships to various phenomena. Here the place is also conceived as meaningful for the understanding of society, milieu and sustainable development, as also to develop knowledge through familiarity. The non-school related context one found oneself in in leisure hours during one’s childhood and youth are conceived as the basis of the development of a personal relationship to the landscape. The study points to the significance of direct authentic place-related encounters in the outdoor environment.
