Plymouth University are hosting the next Higher Education Network (HEN) Annual Meeting of the Geological Society of London, which has a general theme of Sharing Educational Practice in the Geosciences. 

This meeting aims to provide a forum for lively, informed debate between teachers, students, practitioners, employers and other stakeholders on higher education practice in the GEES disciplines. We welcome contributions on any aspect of GEES higher education, including:

  • discussions and demonstrations of new technologies
  • fresh approaches to teaching and learning
  • evaluations and examinations of existing pedagogy
  • insights from teaching experiences
  • reports on, and feedback from, ongoing projects
  • innovative solutions for teaching in a shifting educational climate.

Keynote speakers

  • Brett Gilley, University of British Columbia (Vancouver) 
  • Roddy Muir, Midland Valley Exploration
The conference will be followed by a one-day workshop on the broad theme of “E-games and virtual worlds: golden egg or wild GEES chase?” facilitated by Dr Jamie Pringle (Keele University). This interactive event will explore the potential for these emerging technologies in geoscience education through a combination of discussion, show-and-tell, and demonstrations, and form the basis for a special issue of Geology Today

Our schedule will also be graced by the HEN AGM, to which all delegates are cordially invited.

Book via the University eStore to register a place (last booking date: 19 January 2015).
