THE GEES network is a teaching-focused resource for academics in Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences.
Our blog: What works for learning and teaching in HE GEES?
Our aim is to provide a way for you to quickly share learning with colleagues.
We invite blog posts of between 500-1000 on ‘what works’ in learning and teaching in higher education Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences.
We are keen to publish reflections by educators about approaches and interventions they have tried with their students or rationales of possible interventions they plan. The latter could be by authors seeking collaborators for joint evaluations of interventions. Contributions can be initial impressions and reflections as well as evidence-based evaluation.
We would welcome blogs by educators working in schools or other settings proposing approaches which could be useful in HE.
We are keen to receive summaries or reflections from authors of pedagogic peer reviewed papers (in journals such as the Journal of Geography in Higher Education) and by those presenting pedagogic papers at conferences (such as the RGS IBG, The Geological Society, and AAG).
Blog posts are reviewed by the editors and are not peer reviewed. If you are able to include copyright free images then please do.
