QuanTile Launch at the RGS

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 the Department of Geography and Planning here at Liverpool) have been part of a group investigating this topic,  producing this report https://www.researchgate.net/publication/256191493_Quantitative_Methods_in_Geography_Making_the_Connections_between_Schools_Universities_and_Employers . 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:
