Teaching and Learning in Geoscience Education, 23-29 July 2016

The 2016 Summer School for the Teaching and Learning in Geoscience Education at Keele University is an intensive module preparing trained teachers (usually of science or geography) to teach Geology at A- and GCSE level and to contribute to the Higher in Environmental Studies in Scotland.  It is designed for participants to build on their experience and teaching skills by developing their subject knowledge and related pedagogical understanding in geology/Earth science whilst reflecting on and improving their practice.

The module is accredited by Keele University and is worth 15 credits that can be passed at postgraduate or professional level, and it also carries an Earth Science Education Unit CPD Certificate. More detailed information here


The Teaching & Learning in Geoscience Education module is supported by 11 industrial bursaries, so is free of charge to those UK/EU citizens that meet the competitive bursary criteria.  The cost is £1,650 for those UK/EU citizens for whom a bursary is not available (costs include accommodation, hospitality and fieldwork excursions).

The Summer School is supported by the Petroleum Exploration Society of Great Britain (PESGB), UK Onshore Geophysical Library (UKOGL) and Seismic Image Processing.
