Accessible fieldwork

Field experience is a crucial component in the professional practice of geoscience.  All learners, regardless of their stage of education, should see geoscience as an accessible academic endeavour which offers viable career opportunities.

jklhFor learners with disabilities, however, the physical and psychological challenges presented by fieldwork, coupled with the rigorous schedule of fieldwork characteristic of most undergraduate programmes, can deter talented individuals from engaging with geoscience beyond compulsory education.

This one-day event explores the issues involved in making fieldwork accessible to learners with a diverse range of abilities.  We welcome and encourage participation from geoscience educators, industry professionals, and organisations involved in the provision of fieldwork in both formal and informal capacities. 

How can we the wider geoscience community embrace this undertaking to attract and foster the talents of people with diverse abilities? Join us at Burlington House on Friday 26 June and take part.  Registration -
