Jim Leddy will run two groups at home: Ellerslie, Keir Street, Dunblane FK15 9BP.
The introductory course (1.) looks at the main rock types & the geological processes involved. There is also the opportunity to study minerals and fossils. In all cases students will be able to refer to hand specimens.
Subsequent classes (2,3,4) look at a wide variety of topics ranging from geological dating , geological maps, further study of rocks, continental drift and the debate surrounding fracking. Field trips during the summer are available depending on time and weather constraints.
This gives a broad outline of what the course is about. I've found that the class itself determines the direction we take or how long we spend on a particular topic.
All groups will have a break for refreshments during the sessions).
