A potential value of familiarity and experience: can informal fieldwork have a lasting impact upon literacy? (2012)
Journal Article
Scott, G. W., & Boyd, M. (2014). A potential value of familiarity and experience: can informal fieldwork have a lasting impact upon literacy?. Education 3-13, 42(5), 517-527. https://doi.org/10.1080/03004279.2012.731418

This paper demonstrates that an informal field trip can have a lasting impact upon aspects of learning in a primary school context. Specifically, we consider the longer term impact of an informal trip to a rocky shore upon scores achieved in literacy...

Students' perception of biology fieldwork : the example of students undertaking a preliminary year at a UK university (2012)
Journal Article
Goulder, R., Scott, G., & Scott, L. J. (2013). Students' perception of biology fieldwork : the example of students undertaking a preliminary year at a UK university. International journal of science education, 35(8), 1385-1406. https://doi.org/10.1080/09500693.2012.708796

It is widely held among biology teachers that fieldwork is valuable, but little is heard about students' perception of fieldwork or about the reasons for their liking or disliking fieldwork. This paper uses data from students to explore the hypothese... Read More about Students' perception of biology fieldwork : the example of students undertaking a preliminary year at a UK university.

Can the integration of field and classroom-based learning enhance writing? The life on our shore case study (2011)
Journal Article
