The Higher Education Academy , Subject Centre for Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences (GEES)

This site describes the results of a research project that was conducted across geography, earth science and environmental science disciplines to examine the effect of fieldwork on students' affective domain. The project aimed to monitor changes in student's attitudes to learning that occurred as a result of attending residential field courses. In addition, the changes in how students value the fieldwork experience were examined and differences in attitudes and values between different groups of students (for example age and gender) were explored. The site contains the project methodology, results, publications stemming from this project, and copies of questionnaires used in the research.
