Internationalization and geography fieldwork: opportunities for skills enhancement

McManus, Ruth orcid logoORCID: 0000-0003-1477-8254 and O'Reilly, Gerry (2011) Internationalization and geography fieldwork: opportunities for skills enhancement. Journal of the Comenius Association (20). pp. 20-25. ISSN 2033-4443

This article outlines the approaches to internationalization undertaken by the Geography Department at St. Patrick’s College, Drumcondra in Dublin. It begins with an overview of the potential of the discipline of geography for internationalization, before explaining some existing practices within the Department which are intended to foster both mobility and internationalization at home. The core of the paper is a discussion of an approach to internationalization through fieldwork which has been developed and refined in the Department over the past eight years. The module is described in detail, together with an examination of learning outcomes and an evaluation of the various IT, linguistic, disciplinary and interpersonal skills fostered by this approach.
