Enhancing Fieldwork Learning Showcase Event 2019
Join the Teaching and Learning SIG for this 2-day event showcasing the latest innovations in fieldwork teaching
This 9th Annual Showcase event aims to share ideas and practice with regards to the innovative field Teaching and Learning; with an emphasis on the use of mobile technologies. As this year marks the 50th year of teaching Botany Masters Degrees at the University of Reading, the Showcase will include an interactive, field botany-based activity led by Drs Jonathan Mitchley and Alastair Culham (visit here for more details).
We also have a confirmed Keynote talk from Dr Matthew Nicholls from Oxford University about how he combines a 3D digital model of Ancient Rome with fieldwork in contemporary Rome to provide students with an insight into the appearance of the ancient city.
The event will be of interest to fieldwork practitioners from a range of disciplines including Geology, Physical and Human Geography, Environmental and Ecological Sciences, Agriculture, Archaeology and the wider Biosciences. It will be relevant to those early in their teaching career as well as those more experienced academics looking to upskill and innovate their teaching practice in the field. The 24hr interactive experience will include presentations of innovative teaching practices as well as practical field experiences.
We are currently accepting submissions for both short, thunderstorm presentations and longer outdoor interactive field activities/demonstrations of innovative field teaching. Please complete this form and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We would particularly welcome submissions on the themes of ‘botany’ and ‘’virtual fieldwork’ to fit with our confirmed key speakers. Abstract submission deadline is 17 May 2019.
The meeting cost is £40 (plus booking fee) to cover registration and food. Information about local accommodation is available on request.
