Geography@Work is a new textbook series published by Folens. My contribution is ‘How sustainable is our coastline. Will we be ready for a rise in sea level?’ The process of writing a text book has been a real eye opener. But why use textbooks? Surely they inhibit creativity?
For a few reasons. The first is to support non specialists in my department. The second is that I believe that textbooks aren’t the reason why the curriculum of the geography department I started at in January (the SoW where all based on the Key Geog…). The reason is how the textbooks where used.
Anyhow, I’m fairly pleased with the result and I hope that some departments will find the book useful…..
