LEED 1030 – Outdoor Adventure History
Module Code: LEED 1030
Aimed at: all students
Module Credits: 10
Teaching period: Semester 1
An overview of the development of equipment, clothing and techniques that have enabled participants to continuously increase the level of technical difficulty and challenge attempted in a number of adventure sports in the years since the first ascent of Mont Blanc in 1786. It will give you the opportunity to see and use some historical equipment and plan, organise and experience a personal challenge in the outdoors.
‘Skills’ modules, those coded LEED, are designed to help you to enhance many of the non-subject specific, transferable skills that top employers are seeking in graduates. The Leeds for Life website gives you some examples of which skills can be developed through the LEED modules and other activities. At a time when competition for jobs is intense, developing such skills is one way to gain an advantage in the employment market.
Think about your existing skills, strengths and weaknesses, and then select a LEED module that will not only complement your existing skills portfolio, but also set you an interesting and enjoyable challenge.
