« on: December 20, 2018, 03:50:37 PM »




Revising and reviewing for geography at GCSE and A level
This course is aimed at teachers of GCSE and A level geography

How can we support our GCSE and A level geography students in reviewing and revising content and skills both throughout and at the end of their courses?  This course will consider evidenced based ideas related to learning and memory and how these can be applied in geography lessons.  Delegates will have the opportunity to share ideas and consider how ideas can be used in their own contexts. This course will build upon ideas from the GA GCSE Geography Revision Toolkit.

Aims
•   Explore evidenced based ideas related to learning and memory
•   Apply ideas to GCSE and A level geography lessons
•   Share ideas and consider how they can be adapted to suit specific contexts

This course will take place in London - Monday 4 February 2019.

A level subject update: global systems and glaciated landscapes
Aimed at teachers of secondary geography

This course, led by Katie Willis (Professor of human geography, Royal Holloway University) and Richard Waller (Senior lecturer in physical geography, Keele University) will provide a subject update for teachers of A level or IB geography.  The morning session will focus on global systems and global governance.  It will outline global governance as a concept, give an overview of mechanisms relating to migration and development and provide up-to-date case studies that can be used with students in the classroom.  Glaciated landscapes will be the focus of the afternoon session.  This will discuss glacial formation, processes and diversity before focusing on the relevance of these landscapes to society and opportunities for fieldwork.

This course will take place in London - Tuesday 5 February 2019.

Outstanding teaching and learning in primary geography
Aimed at primary geography subject leaders

This course will help you develop stimulating geography teaching and learning that will inspire and enthuse both pupils and members of staff. We will consider what constitutes high-quality geographical knowledge and skills, and how to plan for and evidence it. Taking a wider view, we will investigate how aspects of SMSC and British values can be taught in the context of geography and how fieldwork can support effective geography teaching and learning.

Aims
•   Explore outstanding teaching and learning in geography
•   Develop a deeper understanding of what assessment in geography looks like
•   Assess pupils’ learning and plan for improvement
•   Evaluate and plan for whole-school development in the subject
•   Help staff to better support wider issues such as SMSC, British values and the global dimension
•   Develop a deeper understanding of the role of fieldwork in geography

This course will take place in Manchester - Wednesday 6 February 2019.
