Relevant Knowledge, Skills and Values in Geographical Education
Lidstone, John (2003) Relevant Knowledge, Skills and Values in Geographical Education. In Gerber, Rod (Ed.) International Handbook on Geographical Education. Kluwer Academic Publishers, Dordrecht/Boston/ London, pp. 35-45.
A large team of geographers and educators from around the world have injected their perspectives on international issues in the field. While some reflection of past thinking and practice is evident, the main purpose of this publication is to offer international leadership in geographical education to the world in the twenty-first century. Illuminating local and national examples are used to reinforce the international perspectives. The publication challenges geographical educators, policymakers and curriculum developers to reposition themselves for the changing approaches in societies around the world. It is a publication for the thinking geographer and educator who appreciates where international education is travelling to and how its challenges can be met.
