The aim of the project is to examine the impact (if any) of the introduction of visualisation teaching and learning techniques, including Geographical Information Systems in the form of 'crime mapping' data management and analysis software, on student's self-reported experience of, and attitudes toward, quantitative method teaching. To achieve its aim the project will acquire baseline data from undergraduate criminology and sociology students before introducing a targeted intervention - a new teaching module which emphasizes visual learning and teaching strategies - and ascertaining its impact on student learning.
