What Does Good Geography Teaching Look Like?

What Does Good Geography Teaching Look Like? | Geography Education | Scoop.it

Seth Dixon, a Rhode Island College geography professor and the coordinator of the RI Geography Education Alliance, gave the keynote address at the Thinking Geographically about International Issues 2013 summer institute, in a talk entitled What Does Good Geography Teaching Look Like?

Seth Dixon's insight:

I was delighted to speak at Brown University this summer as a part of the Choices Program's summer institute.  This is the video of that talk (as well as the hyperlinked slides) that is my modest attempt to tackle such a monumental question in my profession.

Lorraine Chaffer's curator insight, August 30, 2013 11:25 PM

This is a great video and sa reminder of how we should be approaching our teaching of the Australian Curriculum. 

Jarrod Dodds's curator insight, April 13, 5:49 PM

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?
