    This paper describes the results of the 'Student Views of Fieldwork' project,
    as part of the wider LTSN-GEES pedagogic research and fieldwork
    p r o g ra m m e. Research was conducted across Geogra p h y, E a rth and
    E nvironmental Science disciplines to examine the effect of fieldwork on
    students' affective domain. The project aimed to monitor changes in
    s t u d e n t ’s attitudes to learning that occurred as a result of attending
    residential field courses. In addition, the changes in how students value the
    f i e l d w o rk ex p e rience were examined and differences in attidudes and
    values between different groups of students (for example age and gender)
    were explored.
