To celebrate the Higher Education Research Group becoming the Geography and Education Research Group (GeogEd), a conference is being held at the University of the West of England in mid-December.
Speakers at the conference include Professor Peter Kraftl of the University of Birmingham, who will give a talk on the social geographies in education; Dr Jennifer Hill of the University of the West of England, who will provide a personal account of the intersections between geography and education; and Alan Kinder, Chief Executive of the Geographical Association, who will discuss the intersection of geography education research with school geography.
The remainder of the day will involve discussions and presentations on the experiences of geography students, students' experiences of geography, and the geographies of these experiences, as well as identifying the research priorities of the group over the next three years.
Geography and student experience conference will take place on 16 December at the University of the West of England. Register for the conference.
