 Enhancing Fieldwork Learning’  aims to promote ways to enhance student learning during fieldwork through the use of technology.  Pedagogy rather than technology drives its objectives.  Funding for the project itself ended in 2013, but the BES joined the team in 2014 to continue building the project.
