Mark Jones, Senior Lecturer in Geography Education at the Department of Education and Childhood, and Professor David Lambert (UCL, Institute of Education) have received a national award for their second edition of the co-edited book ‘Debates in Geography Education’published with Routledge.
The Geographical Associations’ Silver award is given in recognition of publications which make a significant contribution to geographical education and professional development. The judges at this year’s conference noted that Mark and David’s book “does what no other geography education text does in one volume – it raises questions about the nature of geography teaching – and although scholarly, it makes the ‘problematic’ in geography teaching accessible. The judges were impressed by the array, depth and contemporary nature of the chapters reflecting current curriculum and assessment issues.” (GA, 2018).
The 23 chapters are written by expert contributors who provide a range of perspectives on international, historical and policy contexts in order to deepen our understanding of significant debates in geography education.
