This paper describes the results of the 'Student Views of Fieldwork' project,
as part of the wider LTSN-GEES pedagogic research and fieldwork
p r o g ra m m e. Research was conducted across Geogra p h y, E a rth and
E nvironmental Science disciplines to examine the effect of fieldwork on
students' affective domain. The project aimed to monitor changes in
s t u d e n t ’s attitudes to learning that occurred as a result of attending
residential field courses. In addition, the changes in how students value the
f i e l d w o rk ex p e rience were examined and differences in attidudes and
values between different groups of students (for example age and gender)
were explored.
