Teaching Quantitative Approaches in Geography

The teaching of quantitative methods in the social sciences especially has been of particular interest to the ESRC, British Academy, HEFCE and the Nuffield Foundation. Chris Brunsdon and Alex Singleton (of this department) have been part of a group investigating this topic, producing this report https://www.researchgate.net/publication/256191493_Quantitative_Methods_

The group had a session launching  the report at the RGS/IBG international conference at the RGS in Kensington Gore - with short presentations from Rich Harris and Chris Brunsdon (shown in photo).

Among other things, a series of video case studies of the use of quantitative methods in geography were produced - these can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCK7Yo59yF3VnV5ePAFy2nnA?feature=watch

and also at www.quantile.info which contains other resources and case studies for those interested in using or teaching quantitative approaches.
