End of the Field? Hacking Online and Hybrid Environments for Field-Based Learning in Geography Education
Larsen, Thomas; Tabor, Lisa; Smith, Patrick
Journal of Geography, v120 n1 p3-11 2021
Increased liability, limited resources, and global pandemics reduce opportunities for field-based learning and accelerate transition to online education across grade levels and geographic contexts. Conventional expectations about teaching through fieldwork (i.e., in-person, led by the instructor) no longer encompass geography as a field discipline. Prospects for field-based learning diversify as technologies make "out there" available "right here" and as online courses grant students agency to engage with and redefine the field. This essay presents those possibilities and describes online modes of deploying and assessing field-based learning.
