Enhancing Fieldwork Learning

Supporting Fieldwork Learning, especially in Further and Higher Education, with technology and pedagogy.

About Us

'Enhancing Fieldwork Learning' was a cross-disciplinary Higher Education Academy funded project which aimed to promote ways to enhance student learning during fieldwork through the use of technology. HEA funding finished in 2013 and the website continues, with the same aim, under the auspices of the British Ecological Society.

"Pedagogy rather than technology drives our objectives."

We engage primarily with Geography, Earth, Ecological, Environmental and Biosciences but are keen to engage with any aligned disciplines whether in the UK or overseas. Our focus is on using affordable, ubiquitous technologies such as iPads, digital cameras and social networks and apps to address problems that may arise during fieldwork such as lack of student engagement or logistical issues such as limited connectivity.
