Quantitative Teaching and Learning in Geography
A critical shortage of skills in quantitative methods (QM) in the UK exists across the educational sector - in schools, universities, and in the workplace.
The Society has initiated a programme of work to support the teaching and learning of quantitative methods in Higher Education in collaboration with the University of Bristol and members of the Society's Quantitative Methods Research Group (QMRG). The project is jointly funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the British Academy (BA) as part of their respective Quantitative Methods Initiatives.
Take part in our survey
As part of the project we are asking students, secondary school teachers, academic lecturers and university heads of teaching to take part in a survey to gain an insight into teaching and learning quantitative methods.
The aim of the surveys is to help us better understand the place of quantitative methods in education. Your answers will help inform how the Society might support you in this area. Many thanks!
