As an interdisciplinary discipline, geography provides unique insights and tools, such as geospatial thinking and maps, in support of scientific inquiries related to space, time, and interactions with a wide realm of other disciplines.

These creative tools and pedagogies often help foster teaching innovation, and trigger new opportunities for the educators and students to enhance the learning outcomes. This session features studies that leverages creative tools or emerging pedagogies to strengthen the geography education. The focus includes, but is not limited to, the design of interdisciplinary learning activities, the application of creative tools, and the evaluation of learning outcomes.
