Podcasts in Support of Experiential Field Learning
Jarvis, Claire; Dickie, Jennifer
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v34 n2 p173-186 May 2010
The paper introduces a library of video podcasts (vodcasts) used to support the learning and teaching of geographical methods and techniques relating to physical geography and GIScience in particular. While the notion of video learning is not new, the accessibility of the multimedia snippets via lightweight mp4 players in a field context allows a geographical freedom to learning that goes beyond previous classroom-based work. Evaluation, conducted through the use of reflective diaries and focus groups, identified that all students thought the podcast reference library was a valuable learning resource, of particular appeal to students with a visual approach to learning. (Contains 5 tables and 1 figure.)
