10 – 11 April
University of Manchester
We are delighted to be sponsoring this year's Geographical Association (GA) Annual Conference and Exhibition.
The GA Annual Conference is set to welcome more than 750 delegates from all phases of geographical education. The event offers lectures from subject specialists, workshops, field visits, teacher-to-teacher sessions, and the UK’s largest exhibition of geographical resources.
Meet the team
Our Geography Subject Officers, Erin Roberts and Paul Evans, will be exhibiting on Stand 57 - 58, ready to direct you to our unbeatable range of free teaching resources, and give you all the help and advice you need.
Visitors to our stand who sign up to our mailing list will be entered into our prize draw to win a Google Mini Home and a full suite of Hodder textbooks and students handbooks (to go alongside our GCSE, AS and A level Geography specifications).
Full terms and conditions are available here.
As a conference sponsor we will be hosting a lecture and workshop delivered by leading geography experts; Professor Danny McCarroll from Swansea University and Paul Turner, Head of Geography at Bedales School and RGS Data Skills Champion.
Wednesday 10 April
Danny will be lecturing on the topic; 'Gas, whisky and old rope: the long-term evolution of the carbon cycle'. This one-man performance, using a variety of props, on the theme of long-term changes in the carbon cycle will use the analogy of diluting a glass of whisky to explain how little CO2 there is in the air, use climbing ropes to show how CO2 and temperature evolved over the last few million years, and end with a projection into the future.
Thursday 11 April
Paul's workshop titled 'That's Rank! Moving beyond Spearman' will explore how the new maths and statistical requirements for geography have taken teachers out of their comfort zone, leaving many unsure how to embed these data skills into their teaching. This workshop will show innovative ways of transferring these skills to students, building your confidence and theirs!
See the full two-day programme on the Geographical Association website.
If you have any 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.
