"Drawing in the Sand" as a Tool for Teaching Coastal Geography
Fagan, Joseph B.; Sturm, Sean
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v39 n3 p478-484 2015
Field trips are recognized as an essential component of the study of geography. They are popular with learners and teachers, but their value as learning experiences is largely assumed. What is needed are interactive and relevant learning activities like "drawing in the sand," a participatory learning activity that has been introduced into an undergraduate geography field trip at The University of Auckland. It allows students of the course to engage actively and reflectively with the very environment that they are studying.
