Risk/Benefit Assessment for Geography Fieldtrips -A3 Colour Poster
The poster provides a framework for field trip 'Benefit Assessment', strongly advocated by Dan Raven-Ellison (UK) during a workshop video conference entitled 'Exploration and Guerilla Geography. Ideas for teaching in the New Zealand curriculum.' Most teachers present had filled out a Risk Assessment form but only one teacher had prepared a Benefit Assessment form. Dan suggested that if the risks amounted to 5/10 and the benefits were assessed at 7/10, then the trip should go ahead; if the risks were 10/10 and the benefits 8/10, then the trip should be abandoned. However if both risks and benefits were assessed as 10/10 then the trip should go ahead.
