INLT Workshop invites commentary and debate
The International Network for Learning and Teaching Geography in Higher Education (INLT) is convening nearly 60 geographers and students from more than 13 countries for a workshop in Washington, D.C. To be held April 12-13, 2010, the workshop will immediately precede the AAG Annual Meeting.
The INLT workshop’s theme, “Changing Geography in Higher Education: Towards a Scholarship of Academic Practice,” is intended to prompt critical debate and discussion about key issues affecting the discipline in higher education settings worldwide.
Workshop participants will be organized into smaller, international groups to develop collaborative manuscripts on the following topics: 1) Designing curricula to develop student employability, 2) Connecting students and departments to the work of community organizations, 3) Embedding student research and inquiry into the curriculum (two separate groups), 4) Enhancing the professional development of early career geographers, 5)
Building collaborations among geographic organizations internationally, 6) Planning and bringing about change in curricula (two separate groups), 7) Promoting synergistic activities between geography and other disciplines.
Anyone with an interest in the workshop topics is invited and encouraged to join the debate by visiting the 2010 INLT Workshop on the Ning.com social network: http://inlt2010.ning.com/
