Bush, Drew; Sieber, Renee; Chandler, Mark A.; Sohl, Linda E. – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2019
Geography educators have long taught anthropogenic global climate change (AGCC) using geospatial data, visualizations, analysis tools and models. We examined the attitudes of teachers at secondary schools, research institutions, colleges and universities tasked with teaching using one such technology. We designed a seventeen-question online survey…

Mol, Lisa; Atchison, Chris – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2019
This exploratory pilot study builds on the image issues associated with geoscience degrees (namely physical geography and geology) and the potential obstacles this creates for prospective applicants with physical disabilities; departmental faculty may not be aware of the exclusive image projected that is thought to attract more students. While the…

Cliffe, Anthony D. – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2019
In the last decade, commercial Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) have become more accessible for use in civil roles such as scientific research. Despite their increasing use in research, there has been little investigation of their potential use as an educational tool in Geoscience. This small-scale mixed methods research investigated the potential…

Barbarà-I-Molinero, Alba; Sancha, Cristina; Cascón-Pereira, Rosalia; Kruger, Heidi Ann – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2019
The transition between university studies and workplace is often described as a difficult and challenging process. In this paper, we propose a series of modifications to the curriculum of geography studies based on an exploration of both student and professional perceptions on the image of the geography profession and how they identify with it.…

Kirschner, Vladka; Peltan, Tomáš – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2019
Urban planning is a practical multifarious discipline and thus teamwork competence is important for urban planners. Cooperative learning is a possible method of obtaining this competence in the education process. Our aim is to investigate the cooperative learning method on the Urban Planning undergraduate course at the Faculty of Environmental…

Jolley, Alison; Hampton, Samuel J.; Brogt, Erik; Kennedy, Ben M.; Fraser, Lyndon; Knox, Angus – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2019
This study compares the field experience and development of sense of place (in this case, human attributed meanings and attachments to the field area) in geoscience students on three separate course sections of a six-day introductory geological mapping field trip. Students stayed in a small farm station within their 4 km[superscript 2] field area,…

Godlewska, Anne; Beyer, Wanda; Whetstone, Scott; Schaefli, Laura; Rose, John; Talan, Breah; Kamin-Patterson, Sean; Lamb, Christopher; Forcione, Melissa – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2019
Faced with diminished faculty resources and increased student enrolment from 2010 to 2017, we sought to use blended learning to achieve active learning in a large c.400-student introductory geography class. Working iteratively over seven years and eight classes and using smart classrooms, better timetabling, experimentation with peer review and…
