Presenting to future geographers at the GA conference
15 May 2017
Two staff members from the School of Geography at QMUL, Dr Stephen Taylor and Kate Amis, plus a team of undergraduates were invited to give a presentation to 50 sixth formers at the annual conference of the Geographical Association (GA) in April this year.
The presentation was entitled Studying geography at university. It was part of the ‘future geographers’ programme open to GCSE and A-level geographers.
The conference was held at the University of Guilford and was attended by over 800 delegates, mainly teachers of geography who took part in a range of lectures, workshops, field visits and social events. The conference is a great platform to find out about the latest ideas, resources and support in primary and secondary geography.
Dr Scoffham, Junior Vice-President of the GA thanked the team from QMUL for the lively and engaging talk. Some of the sixth formers later visited the QMUL stand at the conference to collect a prospectus and find out more about admissions and open days.
The School of Geography hosts the East London branch of the GA and so the conference was an ideal opportunity to meet and chat to both familiar and new faces, showcase our teacher resources and flag up plans for forthcoming events.
Huge thanks to our four ‘supergeographers’ Will Flynn, Emma Barrett, Aqeeb Akram and Jason Lynch for all their help and enthusiasm at the conference!
