Rink, Bradley – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2020
This paper reflects on recent teaching and learning practices in two undergraduate human geography modules at the University of the Western Cape: GES111 "Introduction to Human Geography" and GES225 Space, Place and Mobility in Southern Africa. Content in both modules focuses on mobilities theory and its application toward understanding…

Gregory, Kenneth J.; Lewin, John – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2020
Competing influences and pressures on areas of HE and the content of new AL syllabi suggest a need for curriculum reconsideration. We analyse, from institutional website data, the present provision of physical geography in 77 UK institutions providing undergraduate learning in geography. The extent of compulsory modules gives an indication of…

Blanford, Justine; Kennelly, Patrick; King, Beth; Miller, Douglas; Bracken, Tim – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2020
Capstones in professional masters-level programs serve a unique nexus of developing professional, industry-specific competencies within a graduate-level academic setting. Universities offering such degree programs must demonstrate the benefits of an academic approach to working professionals, while focusing on the development or enhancement of a…

Lembani, Reuben; Gunter, Ashley; Breines, Markus; Dalu, Mwazvita Tapiwa Beatrice – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2020
Access to education is a significant determinant in future success, not only for a country but equally for individuals. Higher Education (HE) thus is an integral part of the Sustainable Development Goals and vital in supporting African development. Despite this, there is often a lack of access to HE in many parts of Africa, distance education can…

Alderman, Derek H.; Reuben, Rose-Redwood – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2020
There are growing debates over removing the names of racist historical figures from public schools and university campus buildings, streets, and other public spaces. This article develops a pedagogical framework for transforming the classroom into a "toponymic workspace," where students can understand and possibly make interventions in…

Wood, Astrid – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2020
This paper explores the benefits and drawbacks of technology-enhanced learning (TEL) to engage undergraduate students in geography modules at Newcastle University. I consider the efficacy of "student response systems" (hereafter SRS, also known as audience response systems, clickers or personal response systems) in large lectures by…

Tian, Jing; Ren, Chang; Lei, Yingzhe; Wang, Yiheng – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2020
Participation of undergraduate students in research helps them nurture critical thinking, develop research skills, enhance self-confidence, and clarify their education or career paths. The curriculum is central to integrating teaching and research, and is a primary source for providing undergraduate research experience. This study designed a…

McNeal, Karen S.; Ryker, Katherine; Whitmeyer, Shelley; Giorgis, Scott; Atkins, Rachel; LaDue, Nicole; Clark, Christine; Soltis, Nick; Pingel, Thomas – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2020
We developed and tested different pedagogical treatments using an Augmented Reality (AR) Sandbox to teach introductory geoscience students about reading topographic maps at five institutions in both pilot and full implementation studies. The AR Sandbox treatments were characterized as 1) unstructured play, 2) a semi-structured lesson, and 3) a…

Schumann, Ronald L., III; Tunks, Jeanne L. – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2020
Social vulnerability describes human susceptibility to harm or loss from hazards; hence, understanding the human-environment interactions that underlie vulnerability is essential for aspiring emergency managers. Notably, however, pedagogical scholarship on social vulnerability remains scarce. To address this gap, this paper considers how an…

Francis, Robert A.; Millington, James D. A.; Cederlöf, Gustav – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2019
Assessment and feedback practices sit at the heart of education and the student experience. This paper reports on undergraduate perceptions of assessment and feedback in the Department of Geography at King's College London, UK. Twenty-eight first and second-year students across six focus groups provided comments on their understanding of feedback,…

Bush, Drew; Sieber, Renee; Chandler, Mark A.; Sohl, Linda E. – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2019
Geography educators have long taught anthropogenic global climate change (AGCC) using geospatial data, visualizations, analysis tools and models. We examined the attitudes of teachers at secondary schools, research institutions, colleges and universities tasked with teaching using one such technology. We designed a seventeen-question online survey…

Jones, Jeannette; Walker, Scott L. – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2019
The study explores the extent to which transformative learning occurs using quantitative and qualitative methods in a human geography course (N = 35) and explores student affect in relation to the learning environment. We used the eight-scale Transformative Learning Environments Survey (TLES) instrument for the quantitative analysis and an aligned…

Haffner, Matthew; Comer, Jonathan C. – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2019
This paper introduces a web-based, interactive point pattern analysis "game" that allows users to generate quickly and repeatedly a point pattern on screen and immediately learn whether the pattern is statistically different from random. It uses two point pattern analysis methods: quadrat analysis (QA) and nearest neighbor analysis…

Westermark, Åsa; Jansund, Bodil – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2019
There are many approaches to teaching about globalization, commodity chains, and sustainability. Education for sustainable development demands teaching approaches that capture multidimensional and integrated aspects of environmental, social, economic, and political factors. In geography, additional aspects require attention, such as understanding…

Mol, Lisa; Atchison, Chris – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2019
This exploratory pilot study builds on the image issues associated with geoscience degrees (namely physical geography and geology) and the potential obstacles this creates for prospective applicants with physical disabilities; departmental faculty may not be aware of the exclusive image projected that is thought to attract more students. While the…
