Recognising Geography as a Partial STEM Subject: The Journey So Far
Caldis, Susan; Kleeman, Grant
Geographical Education, v34 p6-13 2021
In 2018, the National Committee for Geographical Sciences released "Geography: Shaping Australia's Future: a strategic plan for the discipline of geography." Throughout the strategic plan, the contribution of geographical understanding and research to Australia's environmental, economic, and social wellbeing is made clear, and a series of recommendations unfold to guide future directions and planning for the discipline. The Australian Geography Teachers Association (AGTA) took leadership of actioning the recommendations from Chapter 13, "Geography in Australian Schools". The purpose of this paper is to report on the context and journey so far for the recommendation about geography as a partial STEM subject, including the outcomes from a recent national symposium.
