Throughout May I shall share ideas for National Fieldwork Week - one per day...
The Field Studies Council exists to help young people experience the outdoors and learn in the process. They run a number of field study centres which offer residential experiences and tuition for both students and adults. There is a great deal that can be learned from studying in the field rather than in the classroom and the organisation also has several strong links with former Presidents of the Geographical Association.
Get your students out for a walk.
The FSC has very kindly created a set of resources for use during National Fieldwork Week (and at other times of course). They will be appearing on the website shortly, and I will update this post when they appear. Thanks very much to the FSC for their support of the event.
Put on your wellies and get out there:
If you do use this, or any other of the ideas I share, please let us know about what you do. We will be asking people to share their outcomes in various ways. Remember that the theme is CHANGE.
Use the hashtag: #nationalfieldworkweek
