France, Derek; Haigh, Martin – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2018
Fieldwork is the most powerful learning invitation in the toolkit of Geographical Education. This review of papers in "The Journal of Geography in Higher Education" (JGHE) suggests seven modes in the development of fieldwork. These are arrayed as a kind of historical, perhaps evolutionary, sequence but most remain current in Geography…

Marvell, Alan; Simm, David – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2018
The benefits and challenges of international fieldwork are well rehearsed. However, understanding of students' affective experiences during fieldwork is less well developed.

This article illustrates how "global/local" community engagement, a particular form of experiential learning and political work that draws upon geography conceptually, pedagogically, and programmatically, is well suited to advance integrative learning and invite students into social action. Through specific examples from Mount Holyoke…

Research into geography provision in primary initial teacher education [ITE] courses in the United Kingdom and worldwide is very limited. England educates pre-service primary teachers of 5-11 year olds to be "generalists" who teach the full range of curriculum subjects, including geography. This article identifies that the provision of…

Tate, Nicholas J.; Jarvis, Claire H. – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2017
A principal focus in GIS higher education has been with developing curricula or accommodating new technologies to reflect the needs of the developing discipline. Pedagogy has largely reflected traditional metaphors of acquisition and transfer in the context of formal education, and this extends to preparation of students for the workplace. In this…

Churski, Pawel; Motek, Pawel; Stryjakiewicz, Tadeusz; Cybal-Michalska, Agnieszka – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2017
For many years internationalization has not been a strong point of geographical education in post-socialist countries, including Poland. Therefore, all attempts at intensifying it are a real challenge and good practices deserve dissemination. This paper seeks to present the organizational and programme assumptions of a new field of postgraduate…
