|Description||This hands-on course uses the outdoor environment as the inspiration to develop your geography curriculum. The National Curriculum states that geography should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world that remains with them for the rest of their lives; what better way to achieve this than by immersing pupils in real-world geography outside of the classroom? The course will provide numerous ideas for engaging fieldwork and will increase your confidence in getting out of the classroom.|
|Duration||One day event|
|Categories||Primary, Leadership and Management, Teaching and Learning, Sciences, KS1, KS2, Humanities, Management, Teaching staff, Cross-curricular Themes, Wider Context, Outdoor Activities, Education system, Out of school, Earth Science / Geology|
|Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students||
Aims and outcomes:
|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.
