Collaborative Learning and Interinstitutional Partnerships: An Opportunity for Integrative Fieldwork in Geography
Hoalst-Pullen, Nancy; Gatrell, Jay D.
Journal of Geography, v110 n6 p252-263 2011
This article explores the contemporary function and value of field-oriented geography experiences for university-level students. The article details the design and delivery of an interinstitutional field course that partnered faculty and students--both graduate and undergraduate--from two geography programs with different curricular and research emphases. The article examines key aspects of the field course including strategies for obtaining and analyzing field data from both physical and human aspects of the discipline, the application and limitation of distance technologies within the context of field research, and the challenges and opportunities associated with field course experiences. (Contains 8 notes and 7 figures.)
