It would be helpful to have the dates and place of next year's conference on this page. Thanks
We are now accepting session proposals for next year’s Annual Conference taking place at the University of Surrey, Guildford from Thursday 20 – Saturday 22 April.
Lecture and workshop proposals
The deadline for lecture and workshop proposals has now passed.
Workshops are 50-minute sessions. They include interaction and discussion between participants and the facilitator, practical activities with a resource or stimulus and a clear sense of purpose and outcomes. Participants should leave with practical materials for classroom use.
Lectures have clear objectives and are 50-minute sessions that will normally include a 40-minute presentation and 10 minutes of question time.
Lecture Plus sessions include a 25-minute lecture, presented by leading geographers, followed by discussions on classroom implications, applications and possibilities.
Call for papers on research into geographical education
The GA's 2017 Annual Conference in Guildford will include a series of sessions focusing on and reporting recent research into geographical education.
There is scope within the sessions for papers on different types of research, for example action research into teacher's own practice, ethnographic classroom research or research into particular aspects of curriculum or assessment.
The papers should be relevant to teachers of geography in primary or secondary schools or in FE colleges, as well as fellow researchers in the field of geography education. Research paper sessions are 20 minutes long with 5 minutes for questions.
If you are interested in presenting a paper reporting your research, please send an abstract of no more than 200 words to Lucy Oxley by 30 September 2016.
We are currently seeking students and NQTs to present Teacher-to-Teacher sessions at the 2017 GA Annual Conference.
These innovative, 20-minute sessions offer you a unique opportunity for professional conversation about what you do best. The GA encourages less formal exchange of teaching ideas and experiences and wants to ensure that students and NQTs have a chance to share and celebrate their often innovative and stimulating materials with other teachers.
If you're interested in getting involved please contact Lucy Oxley by 30 September 2016.
