The EFL project team coordinates an annual Showcase event that brings together fieldwork educators from a range to disciplines to share innovations in field teaching and learning with a particular focus on the use of technology.
The 10th Enhancing Fieldwork Learning Showcase Event will be held online on the 8th September 2019.
In collaboration with the Teaching and Learning SIG of the British Ecological Society and the Open University we will hold an online event to discuss the creative ways fieldwork teaching activities have been delivered during the COVID-19 lockdown.
Please join us to discuss your #fieldworkfix and to learn about different solutions; including virtual fieldwork, using digital resources, remote teaching, using existing datasets, collecting local data and sharing using citizen science.
We welcome abstract submission for posters, short talks (10 minutes) and virtual demonstrations (15 minutes) of your #fieldworkfix. We will group these into themed sessions and use break-out groups during the day to build in discussion time. The resources gathered through the Twitter #fieldworkfix exchanges and during the virtual conference will be gathered and stored on the EFL website.
The event will be of interest to fieldwork practitioners from a range of disciplines including Environmental and Ecological Sciences, Geology, Physical and Human Geography, Agriculture, Archaeology and the wider Biosciences.
The interactive, online event will include talks, virtual demonstrations and breakout discussion sessions.
REGISTRATION: please email email@example.com to register for the event – you will be added to a Teams group.
DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACT SUBMISSION: 19 June 2020: abstract submission here
