“ In the rush to impose risk minimisation strategies, standardise the student fieldwork experience, provide value for money and entice students away from competitor courses with exotic locations, the far more fundamental pedagogical reasons for leaving the classroom behind are all too often forgotten” (Herrick, 2010)
“ The absence of a widespread pedagogic drive for the use of C&IT in fieldwork mirrors previous findings in the more general teaching of geography context” (Fletcher et. al., 2007)
Enables sharing between students in the field, and with those at University. (Geo)Tagging and comments extend feedback and understanding.
Impact on core skills of observation, identification and sketching needs further evaluation.
Integrating mentor feedback and student/staff commentary into the production of a student’s final summative assessments needs agreement.
