July 2016, over 40 teachers of geography turned up at Skinners’ School, Tunbridge Wells to discuss teaching geography. For me, it was one of the highlights of Term 6.
Guess what, it’s happening again in February (just days after my birthday). This time we’ll be focusing on fieldwork within the new GCSE and A-level specifications.
To start with there will be 45 minutes of presentations from geographers and educators, followed by a 45 minutes breakout session before 15 minutes of so of networking.
During the breakout sessions, teachers will split into groups based upon the GCSE or A-level specs they are teaching. Experiences, good practice and ideas will be shared.
Finally we might make our way to the local bar for a bit of social networking.
