New GA CPD course on Developing Essential Geographical Skills

There's a brand new course being offered next year by the Geographical Association which looks rather good. Having led 40 or so GA CPD courses in my time, I usually had to do it by myself, but this one has a number of presenters: two excellent colleagues from the GA's Secondary Phase Committee, a teacher educator, and two folks from the Gapminder Foundation!
The course introduces teachers to a number of essential skills, and the tools required to develop those skills.
Details are HERE.

This one-day conference will support you in developing both your own and your students’ geographical skills. In a world of fake news, the keynote address (by Gapminder) and Workshop 1 will support a fact-based worldview which will encourage students to think critically about global trends and sustainable development. Workshop 2 focuses on developing your own skills by providing practical tips and advice from a recently qualified teacher, while Workshop 3 will provide support to enable the development of students’ spatial, graphical and statistical skills. The day will conclude by reflecting on and identifying the next steps in your professional learning.

One of the most eye-catching aspects of this conference is the price: just £30 for GA members, but then it is being held, unusually for GA events on a Saturday.

Plenty of ways then that this course is a little different from previous GA offerings. I am sure there will be lots of interest...
