Descr Statistics

The School of Geosciences have created three OERs for teachers of pupils studying biology, geography and environmental science at SCQF Level 6-8 (Scottish Higher, AS-Level, and above) from current research outputs.

Created by author Kay Douglas, the power points are provided on a CC BY licence. They have been uploaded to TES Connect which hosts a range of lesson materials for early years, primary, secondary, and special needs teaching.

These resources have been created to complement the Geoscience Guides.
