Abstract

Students experience a wide range of experiences and emotions when doing short international field courses. Based on a study of a Geography field trip to Barcelona, Spain, this paper examines the influences on the affective domain and the consequent impacts on students’ engagement with learning, as well as performance. Innovative learning and teaching strategies, such as co-production of the field trip, teaching of student peers and self-reflection, can be utilised to help students to make sense of their field encounters and positionality as well as developing a richer sense of place. Finally, the application of these approaches to affiliated subjects will be discussed.
