ESRC-funded workshop on integrating understanding quantitative methods into an undergraduate international relations module in politics
On 26-27 August, Newcastle University will host an ESRC-funded workshop (grant ES/J01186X/1) on integrating understanding quantitative methods into an undergraduate international relations module in Politics. Participants in these workshops will generate teaching materials aimed at helping lecturers and seminar leaders engage students with quantitative methods in their international relations modules. The workshops would benefit from the participation of those with both quantitative and qualitative skills. Lecturers, teaching fellows or postgraduates with teaching experience are all welcome to attend. The cost of your travel will be covered, accommodation and meals are also provided.
The goal of the project is to help undergraduate students become more informed and critical readers of the quantitative material they find in both their academic work and the world at large. The workshop will bring together those who teach international relations and those who teach quantitative methods to develop teaching materials that will help lecturers and seminar leaders to engage students with quantitative methods in their international relations modules.
The workshops will be held 26-27 August in Newcastle, starting at 12:30pm on Monday and going until 4pm Tuesday.
