Module overview

This module provides an introduction to university level study and geography through curiosity, creativity and communication. There is an emphasis on academic, personal and geographical skills, introduced during lecture sessions and then applied through small group tutorials, practicals, fieldwork, digital badges and carefully designed assignments.

As a 30 credit unit, it runs across both semesters and transitions from fundamental academic skills (such as researching, referencing, academic writing and critical thinking), to more applied data- driven/geospatial skills. Non-residential human and physical geography fieldwork will be undertaken in Semester 2.

Pre-requisite of GEOG2030
