South West London network

We have established a new regional fieldwork network for secondary geography teachers based in South West London. The network will support and develop local fieldwork opportunities through shared knowledge and resources, and free fieldwork CPD.

Aims of the Network:

  • To share knowledge of fieldwork locations/ideas/resources
  • To share fieldwork equipment/developments in GIS
  • To collaborate specifically with A Level fieldwork
  • Share developments/concerns regarding GCSE controlled assessment
  • To support ‘best fieldwork practice' through quality CPD

Previous Event: Google Earth Training and Controlled Assessment Workshop

Date: Friday 9 July 2010
Venue: Tolworth Girls School, Surbiton

The free day of fieldwork CPD was divided into two sessions.

The morning session, led by Dr Eleanor Coulber, focused upon using Google Earth for pre-fieldwork activities and to present fieldwork data, including using Google Earth to create a flood risk map of an area.

As part of this network we have created a local fieldwork map. Ultimately, the map will contain fieldwork resources developed by teachers from across South West London. It is hoped that over time this will build into rich resource of local fieldwork ideas and activities for teachers working in South West London.
