The Enhancing Fieldwork Learning team, in collaboration with the British Ecological Society’s Teaching and Learning SIG and the Open University, are holding a one-day online webinar to discuss the creative ways fieldwork teaching activities can be delivered during COVID-19.

Please join us to share your #FieldworkFix and to learn different solutions. These include virtual fieldwork, using digital resources, remote teaching, using existing datasets, collecting local data and sharing using citizen science.

This interactive, online event will run from 9am – 5pm on Microsoft Teams. There will be themed talk sessions, virtual demonstrations and breakout discussion sessions. The resources gathered through the Twitter #fieldworkfix exchanges and during the virtual conference will be gathered and stored on the EFL website.

The event will be of interest to fieldwork practitioners from a range of disciplines including:

  • Environmental and Ecological Sciences
  • Geology
  • Physical and Human Geography
  • Agriculture
  • Archaeology
  • Wider Biosciences


We welcome abstract submission for posters, short talks (10 minutes) and virtual demonstrations (15 minutes) of your #FieldworkFix. To submit an abstract for a virtual presentation, virtual demonstration, or virtual poster, click here. Deadline for abstract submissions is 19 June 2020.
