Geography Education

Geography Education investigates how geography is taught and learned, including spatial learning, effective use of information technology, assessment, and institutional factors in geography education. Faculty in this group participate in national projects and publications such as Geography for Life: The National Geography Standards, Journal of Geography in Higher Education, the National Academy of Sciences' Committee on Spatial Thinking and Mapping Sciences, the Geography Education National Implementation Project, and the Alliance for Geographic Education. Research in geography education focuses on discovering the character, genesis, nature, and ontogenesis of geographic expertise, and ways to assess and develop it. Currently the geography education faculty are studying how people learn to think spatially and how geographic representations produced by geospatial technologies support the development of geographic expertise.
