EFL Showcase 2020

In September I gave a presentation at the 10th Annual Showcase for the Enhancing Fieldwork Learning project, expertly hosted by the University of Chester. You can watch a recording of my talk above. Perhaps more usefully, the following link takes you to a YouTube playlist where you can watch any or all of the other talks: view playlist of all talks. It was a really interesting day, with talks on a wide range of topics. Thanks to the organisers and participants!

The EFL project is supported by the British Ecological Society and the Open University. You can find out more about their work here and follow them on Twitter @FIELDWORK_NTF
