Lectures

Public lecture - From Geo-education to Geocommunication: new rules of engagement

All KS
Professor Iain Stewart, Chair in Geoscience Communication at the School of Earth, Ocean and Environment Sciences, University of Plymouth

Television and the mass media offer exciting ways to get geographical content to a broader public but achieving that greater reach brings challenges about both the medium and the message. What can we learn from how geographical knowledge and issues are packaged and framed in popular culture and what are the opportunities (and threats) from alternative social media communications?

Presidential lecture - Crossing boundaries

All KS
Professor Hazel Barrett, 2013–14 President, Geographical Association

As geography educators we are constantly crossing boundaries between levels in our education system and geographical boundaries, as well as pushing back the boundaries of the subject of geography itself. This session will explore how geography crosses subject, as well as human and physical, boundaries. It will give examples of how the subject has been enriched by this openness to ideas and concepts from other subjects and how this has enabled geographers to make significant contributions to how we view and engage with the world in which we live.

Keynote Address - The age of development: mission accomplished or RIP?

All KS
Dr Duncan Green, Senior Strategic Adviser, Oxfam

The last 70 years has been a period of unparalleled human progress. There is a very real prospect that over the coming 20 years extreme poverty and hunger can be abolished, but there are significant threats to the achievement of that vision, including climate change, conflict and population growth. This lecture will discuss both threats and opportunities and argue that a combination of active citizens and effective states can ensure ‘mission accomplished’.

Lecture Plus 3 - Britain’s global links: what can we learn from the First World War centenary?

All KS
Sunder Katwala, Director, British Future

How far will the First World War centenary offer opportunities to inform and educate young people about Britain’s global connections with the Commonwealth and beyond? What opportunities will it offer to schools and others to explore these global links? What challenges do practitioners need to consider when tackling this potentially controversial topic?

Research Papers

Helping secondary geography teachers to structurally integrate fieldwork in their lessons

Dr Katie Oost and Dr Bregje de Vries, HAN University of Applied Sciences, Nijmegen, and Professor Dr Joop van der Schee, VU University, Centre for Educational Training, Assessment and Research, Amsterdam

Over the last decades, empirical findings have shown the positive impact of geography fieldwork on the learning of students. That is why it should be structurally integrated into the geography curriculum. This study focuses on a scenario for geography fieldwork that helps geography teachers to structurally integrate it in their lessons through initiating and carrying on an open classroom dialogue in preparation and debriefing, in which theory (geography concepts and their relations) and practice (prior experiences and knowledge, fieldwork experiences and valuations of students) are linked.

Looking at powerful knowledge in geography

Ryan Bate, MA, Geography Education

This research considers whether powerful knowledge can make a useful contribution to geography education and discusses how it might be applied to the geography curriculum for the benefit of learners, teachers and wider stakeholders. It draws on interviews with a range of key figures in the geography education community together with the classroom teachers who could ultimately be required to teach a powerful knowledgebased curriculum.

School linking: sharing perspectives from the Global South

Alison Leonard, Geography Teacher, Westminster School, London

My research seeks to understand how the linking process affects those at the Southern end of global North/South relationships. This paper reports my findings from qualitative research in Ghanaian, Ugandan and Tanzanian schools, shares my recommendations made at the end of my doctoral research and explains how this research could promote critical thinking about some of the complex development issues which can emerge from linking relationships.

Teaching and assessing ‘Thinking like a Geographer’

Dr Andrew Lee, Head of Geography, Sussex House School

This research explores and evaluates strategies that have been used in the classroom in terms of both pedagogy and assessment. It posits ‘thinking like a geographer’ as being an essentially sagacious approach to multivariate, connected and spatial phenomena, which systematically searches for processes and connections through dialectic and simultaneity, and suggests that such thinking is best taught by modelling it in the classroom using appropriate material.

The effect of GIS lessons on spatial thinking: a case study from Singapore

Josef Tan Hua Hui, Geography Curriculum Planning Officer and Soo Jiunn Huat, Educational Technology Officer, Educational Technology Division, Ministry of Education, Singapore, and Lester Low Chern Tsai, Head of Humanities Department, Catholic Junior College, Singapore

Research has shown that GIS lessons improve student engagement and enhance their spatial thinking. This study adapted the research by Lee and Bednarz (2009) on a group of JC1 (16-17 year olds) students in Singapore to ascertain the effect of GIS lessons on students’ spatial thinking. The findings show that GIS lessons have a positive impact on students’ spatial thinking.

The place of conceptual understanding in New Zealand secondary school geography

Mike Taylor, Andrea Milligan and Jodie Bennett, Faculty of Education, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand

The empirical component of the paper has two strands, the first being an examination of the different ways a ‘conceptual approach’ to New Zealand geography was interpreted by a small, informal, subject association teacher network as subject boundary maintenance; an organisational tool for planning and concept clarification. The second strand reports a classroom teacher’s pedagogical method to going beyond a narrow approach of concept by clarification.
