Abstract: This paper reports from a survey of geographers in the UK that canvassed their Experiences of using audio-visual resources to support teaching and learning. The survey results suggest that geographical learning has embraced audio-visual resources and that these are, on the whole, being employed effectively. Yet, very little Expansion of audio-visual-based learning is anticipated. It is concluded that integration of audiovisual resources into the mainstream curriculum and active learning on the part of students are essential to Ensure effective and sustainable deployment of audio-visual technology.
