Geography Teacher Educators' Conference

About the GTE Conference

The Geography Teacher Educators' (GTE) Conference is an annual event, which takes place early in the year, where geography tutors from ITE courses all over the UK gather to exchange ideas, discuss each other's research and debate current issues within geography education. Materials from previous Conferences can be accessed here.
