Summer course to share geography expertise with teachers

Published: 9 May 2012

The University of Southampton’s physical geographers are to host a course which aims to share their expertise with school teachers.

The course, Science for Society: new developments in physical geography, which runs from 15 - 20 July 2012, will address questions posed in modern society, such as how rivers work at a range of scales, and how this can impact the surrounding ecosystems (including humans).

It is being provided free of charge to geography school teachers in collaboration with Ordnance Survey and in association with The Goldsmith’s Company and the Met Office, with visits planned there as part of the course.

The course is being led by Professor Jane Hart, Dr Julian Leyland, Mr Richard Treves and Dr Pete Landgon. Dr Langdon comments, “We are really pleased to be running this collaborative event . It will provide a great insight for Geography teachers into current cutting edge research within Physical Geography, as well as considering the bigger picture of global environmental change. The teachers will leave armed with new knowledge, skills and techniques which they can pass on to the next generation of Physical Geographers.”
