|Teaching resource: teaching sociology with archived data||
Tutors can use this resource to create an assignment that enable students to learn to engage with a genuine, real-life piece of research. They are asked to complete specific tasks whilst working within word limits.
This resource provides generic templates for both the tutor's pack and feedback sheets that can be adapted for courses in different sociological thematic areas. These are in MS Word so that they can be adapted as needed.
|Teaching resource: Interview methods||
This teaching resource provides instructors and students with materials designed to assist in teaching qualitative interviewing.
Interviewing is a frequently used method in social research with its suitability being entirely dependent on the particular research question. Qualitative interviewing is generally distinguished from questionnaire-based interviewing, even if the form of communication, such as face-to face conversation, may be the same.
The resource provides brief summaries of several different interviewing techniques and each summary is accompanied by full transcripts or excerpts and the interview schedule (or guidance notes). It concludes with selected references and practical suggestions for how to use the materials for teaching.
|Teaching resource: Using psychosocial approaches||
The resource includes a range of activities that can be used in the classroom or as self-paced learning activities.
The aim of the resource is to familiarise both instructors and students with psychosocial methods and show how other researchers have used these approaches empirically and theoretically in their research projects.
|Teaching resource: Britain by Numbers||
This resource is designed for teachers to get students to think about data and numbers, teach them how to interpret, analyse and visualise data. This will be done by answering questions such as what proportion of the British public opposes capital punishment, how have attitudes about gender roles changed over the last 30 years and how have levels of crime changed in the last few decades.
