Developing External Links through Teaching and Learning in Geography and Environmental Science: the use of the mini-conference
Abstract:A student-led mini-conference has been used as a means of developing employer links. The one-day conference forms part of a final-year module in the Department of Geography at Edge Hill and involves the participation of external agencies. Links with the world of work, the enhancement of student learning and the promotion of regional research are reported. It is suggested that the conference could be used successfully in a variety of subject disciplines.
