|Description||This one-day event will enable Geography A level students to launch their Individual Investigation (also known as the NEA). Experienced examiners will offer sessions which will help students to think through how to select, approach, and complete their own Individual study. A combination of lecture and workshop activities will enable students to: - consider a wide range of topics for investigation - develop a title - think about a wide range of data collection strategies - consider strategies for analysing geographical data - learn how to put together a good proposal form, through reviewing practical examples. Because the NEA is a common requirement for all new A level Geography courses, this conference will suit any student who is studying any of the new 2016 specifications.|
|Duration||One day event|
|Categories||Secondary, Sciences, KS4, Humanities, Out of school, Earth Science / Geology|
|Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students||
|Evidence underpinning this approach||
All GA resources and approaches have been tried and tested by teachers of geography and course evaluations consistently receive very positive feedback.
|How users/participants can evaluate success||
The course presenters provide strategies for short and longer term evaluation of success and in addition the GA’s Quality Mark framework encourages teachers to critically assess the teaching and learning of geography, identify areas of strength, and set future development goals to further capture the potential of all students studying geography.
|Follow-up activities and support||
The GA provides a wealth of supporting web resources, publications, journals, online CPD and a Quality Mark framework and process for supporting self evaluation.
