Welcome to HSSE Online!
Current Issue: Volume 7, Issue 1 2018

This special geography issue of HSSE Online focuses on the research-practice nexus for teaching and learning geography. It celebrates the professional identities of geography teachers as reflective thinkers and education researchers who work towards excellence in their classroom practice through evidence-based interventions. This collection of articles highlights research conducted by both pre-service and in-service geography teachers that have important implications for teaching and learning. Although the research data focuses on geography classrooms and topics, the articles have wider application to a humanities audience as they deal with broader themes of supporting the co-construction of knowledge and critical thinking skills, and using data strategically in both the classroom and the field.

An Inspiring Quote

"[Open-mindedness] includes an active desire to listen to more sides than one; to give heed to facts from whatever source they come; to give full attention to alternative possibilities; to recognize the possibility of error even in the beliefs that are dearest to us."

~ John Dewey, How We Think
