Support for geographical learning

These videos and resource packs provide information on how the Society supports undergraduate studies and geographical learning more broadly.

The videos and resources have been designed to contribute to key themes in undergraduate geography teaching, in particular to: highlight the ways in which students can learn about geography and the world around them; help students make plans for field research, look ahead at careers and act as a role model for other geography students; and to learn more about the Society's historical and contemporary work in supporting geographical learning.

Tutors should scroll to the bottom of the page to download a resource pack which includes additional notes and example student activities for using these videos in teaching. 

A set of short videos to introduce the ways in which the Society supports geographical learning:

Study Geography
An introduction to the Study Geography website, explaining the ways students can start to plan for a career building upon the skills and knowledge they gain during a geography degree.

Grants and support for fieldwork
Juliette Scull, Grants Officer, presents the wide range of grants available to support student field research, and the other support available from the Society for students in the field, including the annual Explore weekend.

Geography Ambassadors
Simon Faulkner, Geography Ambassadors Coordinator, and Ali Murray, a Geography Ambassador who studied at King's College London, describe how the Geography Ambassadors programme is inspiring a new generation of geographers, and how undergraduate students can get involved.

Medals and awards
Stephanie Wyse, of the Research and Higher Education Division, explains the history of the RGS-IBG medals and awards, accompanied by an audio extract from past-president Michael Palin CBE reflecting on the Society's honours boards.
