There is a growing body of research that supports what many tutors have felt is an important way of learning, learning by doing. In geography, and other environmentally focused subjects, the role of practical and field work is often cited as a key factor in the undergraduate learning experience, and something that facilitates understanding. However, the link between this ‘doing’ and ‘understanding’, is reflection (Kolb, 1984; Hinett, 2004).
