Chapter 29: Learning for work

Ifan D.H. Shepherd


This chapter explores the interplay between the world of learning and the world of work. It reviews a variety of classroom and external activities that are designed to provide geography students with opportunities to become aware of, and prepared for, employment after graduation. The variety of student learning activities reported in the literature are organised as a set of levels, ranging from those with the lowest degrees of student engagement with work activities and workplaces at one end, to levels with the highest degrees of engagement at the other. The chapter critically examines recent and current practices and highlights unresolved issues and challenges.
