The introduction of the Geography Fieldwork Investigation to the A-level curriculum has created new interest and challenges to both pupils and teachers alike. Pupils choose and investigate their own research question in a geographic field in a similar manner to a dissertation at university. University research staff have a depth of experience in both conducting research and supervising dissertations, so are in an ideal position to offer advice and training to teachers to encourage high quality fieldwork investigations.

The Department of Geography at King’s College London will hold a half-day workshop to collaborate and share experiences of research and supervision with geography teachers. The workshop will involve presentations from staff across the geographic discipline who will share successful examples of how they have conducted successful research and open discussions on how to encourage A-level pupils to do similar. It will include demonstrations on the variety of ways to collect and analyse different types of data that can make a successful fieldwork investigation.

The workshop will also give visiting teachers a chance to establish links, see what current research is being conducted and visit the facilities within the department.

This event is ran exclusively for the Geographical Association
