Event Overview

Fieldtrips are an integral part of teaching and learning for children. Through fieldtrips children can have a more authentic experience related to their learning. We know why fieldtrips are important, we have a good idea of their value in linking learning with life and we also understand how fieldtrips can support development of self-esteem, self-confidence, independence and socials skills in children. However, over the years the use of fieldtrips in schools has reduced.

In this masterclass, we will explore the concept of fieldtrips, examine the science of fieldtrips and understand why it is important for educators to learn about using fieldtrips in and for teaching. This masterclass is for those interested in careers in Education, Teaching or who have an interest in how children learn.

This session will last around 60 minutes, with plenty of time for audience questions.
