(Working title & details, may be subject to amendment)

This session aims to explore any aspects of teaching approaches which place students in the role of co-producers, with specific reference to Rural Geography. This may include engaging students as pedagogic consultants and evaluators or co-designers of curriculum. Additionally it aims to explore approaches which enable students to design and develop their own teaching materials. From the perspective of Rural Geography, attention may also be paid as to whether there is anything about this subject which makes if either especially amenable or especially resistant to such innovations. Such approaches, opportunities and challenges will be discussed and evaluated against a background of increasing consumerism within higher education.
