Here comes summer...

Summer holidays are here, when I will be getting ready for the next year, when we will be teaching the Adventure Landscapes topic again. This is a great topic, and will offer a lot of options for us to teach about landscapes and our relationships with them.

Which landscapes are you going to visit over the summer?

The yellowing....

Every year about this time, I get a reminder of the resource I wrote as part of the KS3 Toolkit on the yellowing of the English countryside...

This is the newly flowering rape near Swaffham, Norfolk...

GA Conference Beermeet

I met with my HoD: Claire Kyndt this lunchtime to talk through the lecture that we are doing at the Geographical Association Conference on the 10th of April.
Here's the details for you:

DateFriday 10 April       
Time: 13.50-14.40          
Session number: Lecture 6
Title of session
The impact of the ordinary: the story of a geography department
Room type: Lecture Theatre      
Room allocated: D7

Once that's over I have to head over to do the plenary for the double workshop being organised by the GA's Secondary Phase Committee and led by Bethan Harries. 

Then I have a meeting of folks from the GeoCapabilities project.

In the evening there's the 4th or 5th annual BeerMeet. Here's this year's poster, designed by Richard Allaway, with an original illustration by the redoubtable Tom Morgan Jones.

See you there....
