Welcome to the new term!

The N Staffs GA branch lecture programme for 2015 - 2016  has just been published and is being sent electronically if we have your details and also to Staffs schools in hard copy!

The first lecture is very topical and I am sure you will want your students to engage in this multi-facetted global issue!

Borders, migration and globalisation: changing geographies of mobility and their impacts on the UK.
Dr Jonathan Darling, University of Manchester.
Wednesday 16th September 2015 at 7.30
Room 001, Science Centre, Staffordshire University, Leek Road, Stoke-on-Trent, ST4 2DF

Everyone welcome! Single lecture £2; Annual membership £10; GA member £8; Student £5.
Corporate school / college membership £25 allows unlimited numbers.

Love it!
It would be good for all those geography teachers who spend long long hours at school and at times feel that they really should sleep there!

I took a group of geography teachers to Bolivia and Peru in 2012 with The Specialist Travel Company - they were very helpful, especially Adrian, who is a geographer! The tour was personalised for us! We had superb guides throughout!

We use WordPress for our PGCE course at Keele - easy to  set up and administer, pretty flexible, can have open access areas and password protected areas.

Well - it is great to see 4 "old timers" speaking here again!!
The forum is only as active as its community!
I keep "activating" new members - don't know where they are though.
A good number of previous regulars have gained promotion and may not be so involved in geography now .... and some have retired!!  ???

I know it is short notice, but could you get them outside - perhaps doing local fieldwork - perhaps to draw up a presentation / display / info booklet for the new Y7s or for feeder primaries?
