Practical Pedagogies - check out the programme

If you're still unsure about whether to come to Practical Pedagogies, which takes place in Cologne in November, the Timetable of Sessions has now been revealed by Russel Tarr.

Here's the description of my session:

Using curriculum artefacts in geography: developing a pedagogy of narratives

Alan will share outcomes from two ERASMUS+ funded projects which he has been involved with, and which have informed his recent teaching, plus two projects where he has connected with university geographers. There will be a focus on the development of curriculum artefacts: substantive resources based around physical objects. Alan will outline the idea of a 'pedagogy of narratives', with a focus on storytelling, and helping students to 'write the earth': one of geography's core purposes. There will be some time to respond to the ideas, and work in groups to create your own resource(s) to use back in your own classroom.

This will be based on some work on the GI Learner and GeoCapabilities projects and other work at King's Ely.
