Join us at our Data Skills in Geography training event led by RGS-IBG Data Skills Champions Chloe Searl and Dawn Thomas.
“Recent changes have brought renewed emphasis on students being trained in data skills (the collection, analysis and presentation of data) in geography at GCSE, A Level and in undergraduate courses. This is presenting new and tough challenges for many school teachers.”
Does this sound familiar? Struggling to plan your NEA fieldwork? If so, our Data Skills in Geography training could be just what you have been waiting for. Both Chloe and Dawn work daily with teachers and students to develop successful fieldwork experiences. They will give you practical advice and guidance on planning data-led fieldwork and integrating data skills into your teaching, ensuring that your students are able to collect, present and analyse the right data effectively. We aim to make you more competent and confident when using data both inside and outside the classroom, so please bring a coat and some comfortable shoes!
The conference will focus on the use of ArcGIS for fieldwork and the A Level Independent Investigation. It is run in partnership with Esri UK and will be led by their education team.
