Overseas Fieldwork in HE

A collaborative event between LTSN Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences (GEES) and LTSN Languages, Linguistics and Area Studies (in association with the Royal Geographical Society with the Institute of British Geographers)

A National Conference
Wednesday April 2nd, Geological Society, London

One of the most appealing characteristics of a degree for undergraduates in many disciplines is undertaking overseas fieldwork.  Travelling to far-away places, undertaking valuable research and meeting new people can all provide a very rich and exciting student learning experience.  However, planning such fieldwork requires a considerable amount of time and effort.   What will you do?  Where will you go? How will you assess student work?  How will you deal with student health & safety and accessibility issues? And how will you get institutional support?

These are some of the important questions that need to be considered by academics running overseas fieldwork in all subjects.  This conference provides a unique opportunity for a wide-range of practitioners from a variety of different disciplines to network and collaborate on issues relating to the running of overseas field programmes.  So, if you've ever wondered how other disciplines deliver overseas fieldwork and what they do, this is your chance to find out and learn from their experience!

Specifically, this event aims to:

1.      Bring together academics involved in HE overseas fieldwork from a variety of disciplines in order to share expertise, exchange ideas and good practice;

2.      Raise awareness of the inter-disciplinary learning needs of students on degree programmes with overseas fieldwork components;

3.      Provide opportunities to discuss the academic and the practical/logistical issues when designing and delivering overseas fieldwork;

4.      Identify the needs of colleagues with respect to overseas fieldwork support and guidance;

5.      Assist in the building of an area studies network to discuss inter-disciplinary issues such as overseas fieldwork and other generic issues

We hope as a consequence of this event that delegates will also be able to benefit from a range of materials (case studies, teaching materials, articles etc.) that represent good practice in learning and teaching of overseas fieldwork programmes.

The event is free of charge, and you can get full details of the programme and register online now at:
