Dr John Boyle B.Sc. Ph.D.

Lecturer Geography and Planning

    Teaching

    My teaching covers a range of topics including environmental chemistry, hillslope hydrology and limnology. I also teach a number a practical skills, most notably in the year 1 CTL practical classes, and have been involved heavily in the development of our field teaching program.
    In all of my teaching I believe that hand-on experience, when supported by appropriate written materials, provides the best foundation for learning. I also feel very strongly that physical geography should have its foundations in the field. I am also a firm supporter of the use of simple computer-based formative assessment, as a means of providing immediate feedback on skills or knowledge based learning.
