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.
