Assoc. Prof. Niamh Moore-Cherry and Dr Arlene Crampsie publish a Handbook on Teaching and Learning in Geography


Excellence in teaching, leading to publications, great work from Associate Professor Niamh Moore-Cherry and Dr Arlene Crampsie.

This exemplary Handbook provides readers with a novel synthesis of international research, evidence-based practice and personal reflections to offer an overview of the current state of knowledge in the field of teaching geography in higher education. Chapters cover the three key transitions – into, through, and out of higher education – to present a thorough analysis of the topic.

With key contributions from top scholars, the Handbook investigates student transitions, exploring how students require different pedagogical approaches as they progress through university or college. A wide range of learning contexts relevant to the breadth of spaces and places in which geography teaching takes place is used to provide examples of how teaching and learning in geography can be enhanced. It identifies key principles including working in partnership and acknowledging the whole student, calling for the adoption of courageous pedagogy.

With a useful resources section included in each chapter, this Handbook is a vital reference source for those teaching geography in higher education settings. Written in an accessible style, it will also be of use to early career geographers and those who are new to teaching, including postgraduate students.
