Teaching Materials

The following materials have been created by AQMeN are now available as shared resources:

  • Scottish Independence Referendum: Secondary school teaching materials
    These materials have been developed by researchers conducting research on public attitudes on the Scottish independence referendum, held in 2014. They focus on questions about young people's political engagement and views in a way that is relevant beyond the referendum
  • Quantitative Methods: Postgraduate teaching guidance notes
    This set of guidance notes has been produced to fulfil a widely perceived and partially expressed need for help with teaching quantitative methods (QM) to social science postgraduates within Scottish Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and beyond.
