Setting up a successful fieldcourse

Today we ran a workshop at the BES Annual Meeting on ‘Setting up a successful fieldcourse’. The slides are available here:

The idea was to facilitate peer-to-peer sharing of tips on how to set up a fieldcourse for those new to teaching. We were very lucky as roughly half the audience were experienced field educators who willingly shared their experience with those who were new to teaching. Working in small groups we considered top tips for pre-fieldwork, during fieldwork and post-fieldwork activities.

We have updated the slides with the suggestions from today (see above)  and the presentation concludes with lists of resources for both staff and students.

Many thanks to all who contributed to the discussions during the workshop and through conversations on Twitter. Happy Christmas!DuoayanW4AEHFiG.jpg large
