Alex Prins is an early career researcher who has worked in outdoor and physical education for over a decade and is currently Lecturer in health and physical education at Federation University Australia.
Alex is committed to helping students graduate with strong foundational knowledge and skills to successfully begin their careers in outdoor and physical education, ready to become the future leaders of tomorrow. He is currently studying for his PhD and has begun to publish his research findings internationally in the areas of outdoor education and landscape studies.
Alex’s interest in landscape studies focuses on the subjective experience of learning and teaching local landscapes. In particular, he is interested in how individuals learn and come to know local coastal landscapes intimately. He believes meaningful insights into the subjective pedagogical experiences of learners and educators on the coast will help to improve coastal education programs and experiences.
