Introduction


This project aims to increase the use of real data sources held within the JISC portfolio of HE/FE research, teaching and learning resources in the classroom. A grander mission is to improve the data literacy of GCE A level and university students to:

X4L SDiT uses the study of crime in society to show how existing data sources can be utilised, and as such, this project is relevant to a range of social science disciplines, such as sociology, politics, psychology and media studies. The project is also relevant to citizenship studies. The resources can be used for A level syllabi but are also highly applicable for undergraduate and postgraduate learning.

The project has been funded by the JISC Exchange for Learning (X4L) Programme.


The resources can be used for A level syllabi but are also highly applicable for undergraduate and postgraduate learning.
