Useful Links

Pedagogic Research

GeogEd has close links to the Journal of Geography in Higher Education.  The journal provides a wide range of useful resources for teaching and learning geography in higher education.  We would encourage to consider publishing your work in the journal.

Not ready to publish in a journal? You might want to consider a short article for the Teaching-focused in HE blog.
