Understanding Place Making - Urban Fieldwork in Tower Hamlets for secondary...
Kate Amis, schools liaison officer for the School of Geography, QMUL leads this half day of urban fieldwork for teachers.
Join us to investigate Place Making in Tower Hamlets
Whether you want to enhance your understanding of concepts in cultural geography, develop a detailed local case study or consider ways of constructing field enquiries around place making this will be a useful half day for teachers of GCSE and A Level geography. This is a great opportunity to update your understanding of the concept of place identity and the role of diverse media in representing place.
The day will include input from some of the groups and organisations (planners, architects, residents associations and community groups) who have a role in shaping the area. Visit points will include places in the Whitechapel Vision planning scheme http://www.towerhamlets.gov.uk/Documents/Planning-and-building-control/Strategic-Planning/WV-brochure-v4-low-res.pdf
A comprehensive resource pack is included for participating teachers.
Open to: Teachers and those training to teach. If you are not in teaching but would be interested in attending please enquire direct to email@example.com
