National Organisations Supporting the Professional Development of Teaching of Geography in Higher Education (HE)

In March 2000 the Geography Discipline Network undertook a survey to study the ways in which National Geography Organisations support the development of their members who teach in higher education. Organisations were asked to complete the questionnaire reproduced below.
