Module content

This module is informed by a commitment to greater depth of Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK) in Geography Education. It explores the concept of PCK, and how PCK can be developed amongst Geography Teachers, to make Geography teaching and learning more effective. The module also examines ‘alternate’ conceptions and misconceptions in Geography; and how a stronger and more well developed PCK can empower teachers to become ‘Master Teachers’ of Geography. A special emphasis on the importance and value of Graphicacy and Spatial Thinking (and Spatial Technologies) will be applied to the teaching approach of this module, for Geography Education. In the process, various methodologies, policies, the CAPS document and assessment practices in more effectively teaching Geography will be unpacked, researched and explored.
