Jarrod Dodds's insight:

In this video, Seth Dixon demonstrates a profound knowledge of geographical concepts . More importantly, it's his delivery and approach to teaching those concepts.

 

Watch this video and respond to the questions.

 

1) Highlight what methods the professor uses to engage students effectively.

 

2) Why do you think those methods are important, particularly for the subject of geography?

Jarrod Dodds's insight:

I turn your attention to this page for its relevance as a geographical framework. Aligned with ACARA, Australian Government Research Council and many teacher associations, this website provides the tools required to successfully teach different geography systems across the board of Australia.
