Browne, Kath – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2020
While feminist and queer pedagogic literatures can celebrate the inclusion of "other lives", and the successes of their endeavours, this paper seeks to focus on the "here" and everyday hegemonies of heterosexualities and masculinities and the "failings" inherent to teaching practices. When engaging Irish and UK…

Guinness, Patrick – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2012
The challenge of bringing research-based learning to undergraduate development studies and anthropology students has led to convening a fieldschool in Indonesia.

France, Derek; Wakefield, Kelly – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2011
Modern day students are said to hold a toolbox of technical knowledge, which can assist them with their undergraduate studies. The "net generation" is more technologically capable than ever before and crave interactivity and image-rich environments, which has created a need for higher education institutions to diversify assessment…

This paper reviews the opportunities and challenges for re-framing the purpose, process, product and assessment of final-year geography dissertations.

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…

Whalley, W. Brian; Saunders, Angharad; Lewis, Robin A.; Buenemann, Michaela; Sutton, Paul C. – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2011
We take a fresh look at geography curricula and their appropriateness to the demands of the 21st century. We reflect on the purpose, content and relevance of undergraduate geography curricula in an age of "supercomplexity". Geography curricula, by their nature, are varied and multiple, with different countries often privileging different…

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…

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…

Herrick, Clare – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2010
As "health" climbs academic, policy, commercial, non-profit and societal agendas, it has become increasingly subject to scrutiny by geographers. Yet, while health geographers may explore the discursive production, operationalization, deployment and management of health; the role of pedagogical practices has been repeatedly overlooked…
