About this course

‘Disciplinary knowledge’ in geography is not just another way to talk about fieldwork, or geography skills. The relatively new term includes what we may previously have called ‘geographical enquiry’ but goes further. Broadly speaking, it answers the question: What does it mean to work like a geographer?

This course will:

  • Break down geography ‘disciplinary knowledge’ into clear categories
  • Provide you with practical and engaging approaches for teaching these
  • Unpick the confusion around related concepts like ‘enquiry’, ‘fieldwork’ and ‘skills’
  • Reduce your anxiety about this abstract concept!


  • Headteachers and SLT
  • Geography leaders / humanities leads
  • EYFS, KS1, KS2
