Teaching field surveying to final-year university students: an example from Western Australia
MetadataShow full item record
At Curtin University of Technology, all final-year undergraduate surveying students must take a field-to-finish survey camp as part of their degree programme. This paper outlines the six exercises now set and their educational rationale, including a novel system where a production environment is replicated by setting penalties for late submission of assignments. In addition, some deliberate "traps" are set to reinforce routine checks of their observations. The approaches and philosophies used here may be of use/interest to other field-surveying educators.
