Leeds: Going outside: ideas for primary geography fieldwork

June 13, 2017 at Leeds, United Kingdom in Leeds.


Aimed at primary geography teachers and geography subject leaders

This hands-on course uses the outdoor environment as the inspiration to develop your geography curriculum. The National Curriculum states that geography should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world that remains with them for the rest of their lives; what better way to achieve this than by immersing pupils in real-world geography outside of the classroom? The course will provide numerous ideas for engaging fieldwork and will increase teachers’ confidence in getting out of the classroom.

GA Personal/Group/Concessionary Member: £180
Non-member: £229*

*Includes course fee and one year’s GA membership for your school to Primary Geography.

Leeds: Ken Ramirez in Leeds 2017

June 07, 2017 at Village Hotel Leeds South in Leeds.


Across the two days, Ken will be presenting –

Concept Training
Stretching Your Dog’s Capabilities” There are many conceptual ideas that require a much more focused approach to training. This seminar will review the foundation needed for training broad concepts like modifier cues, mimicry, adduction, matching to sample, counting and other conceptual tasks.

Non-Food Reinforcers
Non-food reinforcers can become as powerful as, or more than, food alone, but only when integrated systematically. In this session Ken will preent the process he uses to introduce, increase and maintain the value of any reinforcer.

Scent Detection
There are many different approaches to handling scent discrimination training including search & rescue techniques, law enforcement uses with narcotics and explosives, and the growing sport of nose work. Ken has worked or consulted with many of these scent detection programs and focuses on the science and the practical application of the actual task and challenges of scent detection training.

Teaching an Animal to say “No”
Ken mentioned this concept briefly during the 2016 seminars. We wanted to know more and we know from the number of questions asked that our delegates did too so we’re delighted that Ken has agreed to present his research in this area for the first time in Europe

Handling Animal Mistakes Positively
Even the best and most focused animals will make mistakes and positive reinforcement trainers are faced with the dilemma of trying to find the best way to respond to those mistakes. This seminar looks at the many options available to trainers and suggests the most positve approach to dealing with unwanted behavior. The draw back to the more traditional aversive approaches will be discussed and the seminar will focus on how best to ignore unwanted behavior and how to use redirection.
