Secondary Geography Subject Knowledge and Pedagogy (EDUM045)

30 credits

Geography’s inclusion in the EBacc means that it is a significant subject in the school curriculum.  The Geography course is designed to provoke thought, challenge assumptions and help develop you as a reflective practitioner of the subject, so that you can enter the teaching profession with clear educational priorities and the skills with which to achieve them. The course is designed to include a range of practical activities, using a framework of explicit theories of teaching and learning; theory and practice cannot be separated as we learn how to teach geography. The University taught course covers a wide range of important issues such as teaching methodology, games and simulations, fieldwork, assessment and managing children’s learning.
