Fagan, Joseph B.; Sturm, Sean – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2015
Field trips are recognized as an essential component of the study of geography. They are popular with learners and teachers, but their value as learning experiences is largely assumed. What is needed are interactive and relevant learning activities like "drawing in the sand," a participatory learning activity that has been introduced…

Bearman, Nick; Munday, Paul; McAvoy, Daniel – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2015
The importance of developing employability skills of graduates has become a strategic priority in higher education. Knowledge of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) tools is a valuable skill for graduates both in terms of the specific skillset it provides and of the wider transferable skills. This paper discusses the importance of GIS as an…

Rohli, Robert V.; Rogge, Rebecca A. – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2012
Living-learning communities (LLCs) have become an important part of the educational experience for many first-year university students. As academic units seek new ways to reach undergraduate students, partnering with an LLC is often an effective solution. This article explores a largely untapped link between LLCs and geography. An inventory of…

Deakin, Hannah; Wakefield, Kelly; Gregorius, Stefanie – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2012
This paper explores peer-to-peer teaching and learning at a postgraduate level using the example of two NVivo workshops run by geography postgraduate students. The workshops took place in March and May 2011 and feedback was collected from all attendees in both sessions. This paper aims to provide a practical guide to organizing and facilitating…

Walkington, Helen; Griffin, Amy L.; Keys-Mathews, Lisa; Metoyer, Sandra K.; Miller, Wendy E.; Baker, Richard; France, Derek – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2011
This article considers the rationale for embedding research and enquiry skills early in the undergraduate geography curriculum and for making these skills explicit to students. A survey of 52 international geography faculty identified critical thinking, framing research questions, reflectivity and creativity as the most challenging research skills…

Donert, Karl; Hay, Iain; Theobald, Rebecca; Valiunaite, Vita; Wakefield, Kelly – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2011
Effective teaching about many of the geographical issues now confronting Earth and humanity requires collective approaches and shared solutions. It follows, therefore, that there is a need to better understand the basis of and process for sustaining successful international collaboration among geography educators. This paper first examines some of…

Moore, Niamh; Fournier, Eric J.; Hardwick, Susan W.; Healey, Mick; MacLachlan, John; Seemann, Jorn – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2011
Learning is a developmental journey, and geography curriculum plays a key role in supporting student progression. In this article, we argue that the concept of "self-authorship" is a useful guiding principle in supporting curriculum revision and reform. A series of international case studies illustrate how self-authorship can be enacted…

Klein, Phil; Fatima, Munazza; McEwen, Lindsey; Moser, Susanne C.; Schmidt, Deanna; Zupan, Sandra – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2011
University-community partnerships offer synergistic spaces for communities to address difficulties and universities to meet their missions. Geographers are well positioned to participate in these partnerships, owing to the discipline's integrative nature, spatial perspectives and analytic approaches, and its attention to social and environmental…

Meijles, Erik; Van Hoven, Bettina – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2010
Drawing on experiences from a project conducted in the "Drentsche Aa" area in the Netherlands, this article discusses the concept of the "rural atelier" as a form of problem-based learning. The rural atelier principle was used originally in rural development planning and described as such by Foorthuis (2005) and Elerie and…

Cotton, Debby R. E.; Stokes, Alison; Cotton, Peter A. – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2010
Much pedagogic research undertaken in geography and other disciplines relies on post-hoc methods such as surveys or interviews to investigate the student experience of higher education (often based on self-reports of behaviour). However, observation of students provides a far more direct route to obtain information about their behaviour, and there…

Barcus, Holly R.; Muehlenhaus, Birgit – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2010
In undergraduate geography programs in the United States there is increasing demand for students to be prepared for real-world project management and to possess strong GIS technical skills and cartographic communication skills upon graduation. There is, however, limited time and opportunity within the framework of traditional undergraduate…

Iveson, Kurt; Neave, Melissa – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2010
This article critically reflects on our effort to "teach across the divide", by integrating physical and human geography in a new first-year course. We achieved this integration by structuring our course around a series of key events, in order to draw out the interaction of "natural" and "social" forces. After setting…

Fromhold-Eisebith, Martina; Freyer, Bernhard; Mose, Ingo; Muhar, Andreas; Vilsmaier, Ulli – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2009
Human geography students face changing qualification requirements due to a shift towards new topics, educational tasks and professional options regarding issues of spatial development. This "practical turn" raises the importance of inter- and transdisciplinary work, management and capability building skills, with case study projects and…

Cornelius, Sarah; Medyckyj-Scott, David; Forrest, David; Williams, Andrew; Mackaness, William – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2008
Work placements are a well-established part of the curricula of many geographical sciences, as are opportunities for online learning. Whilst many aspects of the learning experience for undergraduates have been given an online makeover the placement has remained a "real" experience. This paper considers the potential value of an online placement…
