2PME Geography Methodology Field trip to Silver Strand

On a cold, breezy, bright day in October, staff from the School of Education, NUI Galway brought the 2PME  Geography methodology student teachers on a field trip.

Mr Ambrose Conboy led the trip and the aim was to show student teachers how to plan, prepare and carry out the Geographical Investigation section of the Senior Cycle Geography syllabus.

After an indoor workshop in the Education building, the group set out in convoy to the beautiful Silver Strand Beach, Co Galway.  Using equipment borrowed from the Discipline of Geography, the student teachers examined features of Erosion and Deposition; measured Long Shore Drift and Wave frequency and they also measured the height of the cliff.
