Slides From The GA Teachmeet

ScreenHunter_01 Feb. 19 00.07A number of people have contacted me with a request for the slides for my presentation at the Geography Association Conference – so here they are:

GA TeachMeet 2016




I must point out that ‘Dickie’ had his name changed for the presentation, and the image used was not actually  him.GA Conf TeachMeet erratics The locations for the slides include:

  • Scree cuddling at Gordale, Yorkshire Dales 
  • Erratic Rolling at Gordale, Yorkshire Dales
  • Greek snorkelling at Malham, Yorkshire Dales
  • Limestone song at Malham, Yorkshire Dales



The different beers used to introduce the slides included:

  • ‘Proper Job’ to represent my fieldwork ‘history’
  • ‘Wainwright’s Golden Ale’ to represent field week in the Lake District (and Yorkshire Dales)
  • ‘Exmoor Gold’ to represent field weeks on Lundy Island, north Devon
  • ‘Amigos Tequila Beer’ to represent the Amigos charity and trip to Uganda
  • ‘Unicorn Ale’ to match my Twitter handle, and to represent my offering of an emotional mapping exercise – outlined in an earlier blog on this site.
I intended to use a beer called ‘Black Sheep’ for the Yorkshire Dales slides – but it did not survive Thursday evening in my hotel room …….

My presentation begins at 1:10:15

Thanks once more to all of the people who offered kind feedback from the Teachmeet and the workshop session ‘Addicted to Maps’
