iCRAG has been invited to collaborate with Geological Survey Ireland (GSI) for the Junior Cycle for Teachers (JCT) Geography programme, which is now in its second year. This programme is two-facetted, consisting of professional learning experience days, and a residency programme.
Professional Learning Experience Days
Three professional learning experience days (PLE) will run in the last quarter of 2019 across Ireland. The focus of these PLE days will be sustainability and its relation to geoscience, including physical geography. The subject matter covered by each PLE day is of direct relevance to Geoliteracy Elements 1 and 2.
PLE 1 – University College Dublin – Saturday 5th October
PLE 2 – Copper Coast– Saturday 9th November
PLE 3 – Galway – Saturday 23rd November
iCRAG and GSI are in the process of setting up a Teachers in Residence programme as part of their collaboration with JCT Geography. More details to follow!
