Call for Papers
Experience-based Geography Learning
The topic of the symposium Experience-based Geography Learning relates to the fact that the learning of geography through experiences causes lasting impacts that are meaningful to students’ own lives. Experience-based learning involves the cognitive, affective and physical domain of learning.
The purpose of the Symposium is to stimulate discussion of what and how geography can contribute to experience-based learning in terms of research, education, professional development and best-practice accomplishments.
Your participation is most welcome and encouraged.
While papers about all aspects of Experience-based Geography Learning are welcome, papers on the following areas reflecting current research findings and changes in geographical education are particularly invited:
- Educational research concerning experience-based teaching and learning of geography (e.g. research concerning the efficacy of constructivist approaches to teaching and learning, conceptual change research, cognitive development, etc.)
- Curriculum and experience-based teaching and learning of geography (e.g. educational standards, development of competences, methods and media that foster experience-based teaching and learning, etc.)
- Professional Development (e.g. in-service-teacher)
- Best Practice (maps in action, project-oriented learning, experience-based education for sustainable development, global learning, bilingual learning, etc.)
Paper submission deadline was December 15th, 2011.
No more papers will be accepted from now on. We thank all authors who sent us their abstracts.
