Research-Based Learning: Teaching Development through Fieldschools
Guinness, Patrick
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v36 n3 p329-339 2012
The challenge of bringing research-based learning to undergraduate development studies and anthropology students has led to convening a fieldschool in Indonesia. The fieldschool has been vital in introducing students to fieldwork methodology and in developing a deeper understanding of the relation of research data to development theory. In addition, students who participate in the fieldschool discover a whole new aspect to learning where an emotional and intellectual response to the field situation is required and they are challenged to consider the ethical issues raised in the course of their research.
