The Political Studies Association’s new Teaching Quantitative Methods Network (TQMN) is excited to announce its first workshop ("Embedding Quantitative Methods in Politics Modules"), to be held on 24th November 2016 at University of Liverpool. Registration will open at 10:30, and we will be finished by 4.
The last few years have seen a tremendous growth in staff teaching and researching using quantitative methods in politics and international relations, due in part to the Q-step initiatives and the knock-on effects it has had throughout the discipline. We hope that this will be an opportunity for those involved in teaching quantitative methods in politics and international relations to meet one another and discuss challenges and opportunities going forward. The feedback and discussions from this workshop will help inform our activities going forward.
The workshop will focus on discussing and presenting techniques for Embedding Quantitative Methods in Politics Modules. The following speakers have so far agreed to present their experiences in embedding QM: Nicholas Allen (Royal Holloway), Gidon Cohen (Durham), Mark Brown (Manchester), Maarija Luhiste (Newcastle). If you have experience in embedding QM and would like to present your experiences as part of a roundtable, we would be interested in having more speakers involved.
There are travel bursaries available for postgraduate students. We ask that any postgraduate student interested in attending write 100 words explaining why attendance at the workshop would benefit their professional development. The opportunity to do so is included as part of the registration form, given below.
Attendance at the workshop is free, but for catering purposes, please register by 14 November:
