A collaborative video series between Cardiff University’s School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and educational film company Time for Geography has been presented with the Geographical Association’s Silver Publishers Award 2019.

The Geographical Association is the leading subject association for teachers of geography across the world with the mission to further geographical knowledge and understanding through education. Its Publishers Awards recognise materials associated with geography in schools and colleges that are considered to have made a significant contribution to geographical education and professional development.

The award-winning series of films on why sea cliffs sway during storms, the formation of u-shaped valleys, and glacial landforms were supported by Cardiff University lecturer Dr Claire Earlie, an expert in coastal processes.

Time for Geography was founded by Dr Rob Parker, a former Cardiff University lecturer, with the aim of creating inspiring, open-access educational videos about geography to support teachers and students from secondary school to university.

Dr Parker said: “The Silver Award is a wonderful testament to the success of the partnership between the Cardiff University and Time for Geography in supporting secondary education, and to the fantastic collaborative work that Claire put in to helping make these videos possible.”

The award was presented at the Geographical Association’s Annual Conference at the University of Manchester on the 9th April 2019.
