ERM, a leading environmental and sustainability consulting firm, supports the Society’s work to advance the professional development of geographers, with a particular focus on the knowledge and skills needed to plan and deliver local, high quality, environmental fieldwork.
We are holding a physical geography fieldwork day for geography teachers to support the better use of local sites for geographical fieldwork and to develop and strengthen local teachers’ networks in order to share expertise and help raise standards.
All secondary school teachers are welcome to attend this CPD day. We particularly hope to support schools which might face challenges in providing good quality local fieldwork, as well as schools which can share their existing good practice. The CPD day is free of charge. There is a limited number of places.
The day will focus on coastal landscapes, processes and ecosystems by looking at a number of associated fieldwork sites that show how a coastline responds to both natural and human interaction/intervention. The day will also include appropriate (and cost effective) techniques and a range of curriculum relevant environmental work undertaken by ERM colleagues. Key techniques in physical geography – relevant to shoreline management, saltmarshes and dune management and their ecosystems - within a dynamic coastal context will be explored whilst also addressing pressures from tourism and land-use, sea level rise, increased storminess, and vegetation change.
Appropriate footwear and fieldwork clothing will be needed.
