The Enhancing Fieldwork Learning project team coordinates an annual Showcase event that brings together fieldwork educators from a range to disciplines to share innovations in field teaching and learning with a particular focus on the use of technology. This Showcase event is relevant to those early in their teaching career as well as those more experienced academics looking to upskill and innovate their teaching practice in the field.

We are delighted to announce that the 11th Enhancing Fieldwork Learning Showcase will focus on the themes of Diversity, Inclusivity and Employability; “Fieldwork Skills for All”.
