Geoscience Guides

Still lake with swan

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

Created by authors Kay Douglas & Sophie Flack, the guides 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.
