Geographical Association Annual Conference and Exhibition 2018

‚Äč

Come and meet our team of geography experts at the Annual Geographical Association (GA) Conference and Exhibition. The event is designed for delegates of all phases of geographical education, from PGCE and undergraduate students to classroom and further education teachers and lecturers. The Conference offers contemporary teaching ideas from subject experts in more than 100 lectures, workshops, teacher-to-teacher sessions and field visits.

Our Geography Subject Officers, Erin Roberts and Paul Evans, will be on Stand 67-68 and will be on hand to offer advice and guidance to attendees.

Prize Draw
In addition, visitors to our stand who sign up to receive our email updates will be entered into a prize draw to win a Google Home Mini and the full suite of textbooks and student handbooks produced by Hodder to support our reformed GCSE, AS and A level Geography specifications.

Full terms and conditions are available here.

Lectures
As a conference sponsor we will be hosting two lectures delivered by leading geographers. Erik van Sebille will lead on Friday the 6th of April and Carl Lee on Saturday 7th of April.

Erik is an oceanographer and climate scientist based at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands. His research focuses on how currents and eddies in the ocean transport heat and nutrients, as well as marine organisms and plastics between different regions of the ocean.

As a world leading expert on the problem of plastics in our oceans, Erik has made frequent appearances in the media. He has testified before UK parliament on the banning on microbeads, is a member of a UN panel on the impacts of plastic pollution, and has advised the G7 and Japanese government on the scope of the problem.

At the GA Erik will discuss one of the most topical of issues; 'Our plastic oceans: sources, fate and risks of marine litter'. His lecture will discuss the need to understand how plastic moves through the ocean and identify where it most harms marine life.

Carl has taught A level Geography for over 30 years in schools and FE colleges. He recently worked at the University of Sheffield as a tutor in Community Development and is currently both an associate lecturer in Human Geography at Sheffield Hallam University and a teacher of Eduqas A level Geography at a sixth form centre in Sheffield. 

Carl will be lecturing on the topic; 'Can geographers predict the future?'. His lecture will explore the idea of predictive geography, asking whether geography, as a discipline, and a way of thinking, has the conceptual and practical toolbox that may enable us to effectively imagine the parameters of potential in the future? Carl will focus on the inter-connectivity between population, the global economy and climate change issues and the way in which geography is the enabling subject to grasp complex inter-linkages between seemingly dis-connected fields. A synoptic must for any A level teacher!

For a full programme of events and to book your place, please visit the GA website.

Panel Discussion
In addition to our lectures, we will also be participating in a multi awarding body panel discussion; 'Reflecting on new GCSE geography'. This panel discussion will reflect on the lessons learned with the introduction of the reformed GCSE. It will reflect on professional practice, curriculum content, approaches to effective assessment and professional development/networking. Two current Eduqas teachers will be part of the panel discussing their approaches to effective teaching of the new GCSE curriculum. 

Further information
If you have questions about our Ofqual accredited Geography qualifications, contact our subject specialists. The team will also provide details of resources and additional support to help deliver the specifications.
