After a long period of development, testing and reviews, the new GA website is now live, and looking good in your browser of choice... Check it out...
- the latest news about the GA’s Annual Conference 2018 and celebrations for 125 years of the GA
- the reorganised Shop where you will easily find what you want by key stage, product type or series
- brand new sections on primary and secondary subject leadership which provide extensive support for subject leaders to help them be effective. This includes defining the role; understanding geography’s place in the curriculum; managing change; leading professional development; knowing what good teaching and learning are and leading staff and managing resources. All this is linked to the wider GA website and its excellent CPD programmes, publications, teacher networks and on-line support
- a fully reworked and updated ITE section with extensively cross-referenced support for teacher trainers and mentors, and for trainees providing a ‘one-stop shop’ for geography ITE and offering a wealth of material covering all aspects of geography subject training. In addition, there are pages of advice for those intending to become geography teachers and links for ITE trainers to information on the Geography Teacher Educators’ (GTE) conferences, education research and the teacher training and supply policy debate.
- a new section providing support and guidance on GIS. New pages give an overview of what GIS actually is and provide some practical ideas on how to embed it as part of a departmental geography curriculum. The new GA GIS webpages aim to help teachers with where to start as they seek to discover more about this powerful technology which can boost students’ geographical knowledge and data analysis skills.
In addition, you’ll find the Journals and much of the familiar content that you are used to seeing from the GA in a reorganised and streamlined navigation so that you can quickly find what you’re looking for.
There is a personalised members’ homepage, dedicated teaching resource and journal searches, clearer information on how to get involved with the GA, and much more.
