Bridging the Divide: The Potential Role of Contemporary Geographical Research in Schools
Mackie, Peter; Kazmierczak, Aleksandra
Journal of Geography, v116 n5 p187-196 2017
This article examines the implementation and impacts of a program intended to improve research-led teaching in schools. Little consideration is given to the role of research-led teaching in schools; the argument is that this is a consequence of fractures between schools and universities. A program was developed to bring contemporary geographical research of university scholars into schools. Examining this program, the finding is that being exposed to research: improves access to up-to-date knowledge; heightens student enthusiasm; and informs choices students make about their learning. This article calls for bridges to be built between universities and schools upon the nexus of teaching and research.
