Schaab, Gertrud; Adams, Sybil; Coetzee, Serena – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2022
Maps have been used for centuries to depict the diverse facets of our environment. Thematic maps depict a specific theme and help in revealing geospatial patterns and relations. The study and practice of map making has led to established cartographic design rules. Ever increasing availability of high-quality geospatial data coupled with…

Hodgson, Michael E.; Piovan, Silvia E. – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2022
An introduction in the use of small unmanned aerial systems for mapping is becoming a desirable course for undergraduate students. The controllability of drone aircraft and quality cameras, even in less expensive aerial models, offers opportunities for students to learn and collect their own imagery for a variety of applications. This opportunity…

We report the findings from two global panel "conversations" that, stimulated by the exceptional coronavirus pandemic of 2020/21, explored the concept of resilience in geographic science teaching and learning. Characteristics of resilient teaching, both in general and with reference to GISc, are listed and shown to be essentially what…

Morgan, John D.; Eddy, Brian; Coffey, John W. – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2022
With the increasing availability of web mapping application programming interfaces, those tasked with the job of developing and designing web-based geographic information systems (Web GIS) are faced with the question of how to (re)develop new and existing capabilities. While Web GIS often reproduces features currently available within desktop GIS,…

Kim, Minsung – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2022
Fieldwork is a signature pedagogy in geography with widely understood and diverse benefits. Yet relatively little research exists on how to prepare pre-service geography teachers to become effective fieldwork practitioners and educators. This study developed and examined the pedagogical benefits of a fieldwork education module aimed at promoting…

Varró, Krisztina; Van Gorp, Bouke – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2021
Research on the use(fulness) of student-led film has emphasized the benefits of combining fieldwork and the production of moving image in terms of active, deep and reflexive learning. This paper contributes to this literature by discussing how a video documentary assignment can (also) help fostering relational thinking -- a main objective of human…

Sim, Duncan; Boyle, Elizabeth; Leith, Murray Stewart; Williams, Alan; Jimoyiannis, Athanassios; Tsiotakis, Panagiotis – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2021
This paper explores the contribution to geography teaching which can be made by serious games. We describe the ways in which gaming has progressed from "dissected maps" and jigsaws through board games, to the range of online games which are available today. We describe the development, in conjunction with European partner institutions,…

Asante, Lewis Abedi; Abubakari, Zaid – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2021
Several scholars have, over the years, written about their experiences of the pathway of PhD by publication (PBP). However, little is known about why African doctoral students pursue PBP and their experiences . In this article, we adopt collaborative autoethnography to document our experiences and motivation for choosing the PBP pathway. Based on…

Holloway, Paul; Kenna, Therese; Linehan, Denis; O'Connor, Ray; Bradley, Helen; O'Mahony, Bernadette; Pinkham, Robyn – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2021
Opportunities to deploy digital technologies to research agendas and active learning in tertiary education are becoming more widespread. Despite this, many research techniques are still taught using traditional "pen-and-paper" methodologies. In this article, we report on a strategy for integrating mobile technology into our large (275+)…

Goldberg, Daniel W.; Bowlick, Forrest J.; Stine, Paul E. – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2021
Students in geographic information systems and science (GIS) require significant experience outside of spatial analysis, cartography, and other traditional geographic topics. Computer science knowledge, skills, and practices exist as essential components of GIS practice, but coursework in this area is not universally offered in geography or GIS…
