Cutting Edge Geography: one-day teachers workshop

Saturday 19 May 2012

The Leeds Branch of the Geographical Association invite you to our one-day teachers' workshop 'Cutting Edge Geography' on Saturday 19 May 2012. Following the success of last year's event, we are really pleased that Netherside Hall School (near Skipton) have very kindly agreed to host this event once again.

The venue provides an excellent setting and lays on exceptional catering. A number of presenters have agreed to give up their time in order to make the event a stimulating, rewarding and interesting day. Speakers from academia, teacher training providers, field study centres and industry have all been confirmed, with topics including sustainable urban regeneration, fieldwork, flood risk management and transport geography on the agenda. An optional educational caving trip, led by experienced instructors is also available as a free add-on immediately after this event.

The workshop promises to be an enjoyable day and provides a chance for teachers of secondary and A-level geography to network with colleagues and gain new ideas in a friendly environment.

We have to ask for a small contribution of £10 per person (pay on the day - cash only please) to cover the catering and venue costs.
