Enhancing Fieldwork Learning Showcase Event 2018

3-4th September 2018, University of Leeds

You are invited to attend and contribute to the 8th Annual Showcase event run by the Enhancing Fieldwork Learning project in collaboration with the British Ecological Society. Building on the previous Showcases, the event aims to share ideas and practice with regards to innovative field Teaching and Learning, with a particular emphasis on the use of mobile technologies.

The event will be of interest to 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 event will run from lunchtime on Monday 3rd September to lunchtime on Tuesday 4th September at the University of Leeds. The 24hr interactive experience will include presentations of innovative teaching practices as well as practical field experiences.

We are currently accepting submissions for both thunderstorm presentations and longer outdoor interactive field activities/demonstrations. We would particularly welcome submissions on the themes of ‘Urban Ecology’ and ‘Water’.

Please submit an abstract no later than 18th May 2018.  Confirmation of programme will take place no later than 26th May

The meeting cost to cover registration and food is £40. Information of local accommodation is available on request.

 Booking for delegates is through Eventbrite
