Great work
Lorraine Chaffer's curator insight, August 31, 2013 2:25 AM

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, 2014 8:49 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?
