There are many books about teaching in Geography, but this is the first volume to deal specifically with pedagogic research and its methods and practices. Pedagogic research concerns the processes of learning and the development of learners. It is a learner-centred activity that aims to evaluate and improve the ways that students learn and learn to manage, control and comprehend their own learning processes, first as Geographers in Higher Education but equally as future educated citizens. This book explores: original research and critical perspectives on how Geographers learn; critical evaluations of both new and traditional frameworks and methods used for pedagogic research in Geography; and case studies on the promotion of self-authorship and learner autonomy in key Geography Higher Education contexts, such as fieldwork and undergraduate project work. This book is a compilation of articles from various issues of the Journal of Geography in Higher more
