In this chapter we scope eight innovative pedagogies that have the potential to provoke major shifts in teaching, learning and assessment in geography at the undergraduate level. We argue that there are further opportunities for geography educators to embrace newly emerging pedagogies to the positive benefit of students, staff and the health of the discipline. We contend that the next decade of higher education geographical pedagogy might focus less on individual elements of our practice and more on how to integrate latent pedagogies into an effective process for future-facing lifelong learning. This might be achieved by focusing on heutagogy in borderland spaces of learning; bringing together a multiplicity of geography and other disciplinary students over diverse spaces and times to dialogically co-construct understanding, allowing them to determine their own learning needs, and preparing them to be successful citizens in a dynamic and uncertain future.
