Modern Studies teaching development work
  This Knowledge Exchange project is funded by the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice research (the SCCJR). Our team comprises Dr Rebecca Foster (ENU, project lead), Dr Estelle Clayton (ENU), Karyn Mabon (University of Glasgow), Dr Katrina Morrison (ENU), Iga Gumulinska (ENU) and Dr Hannah Graham (University of Stirling).

This project involves three overlapping components. Activity 1 will involve updating SCCJR learning resources for Modern Studies learners and teachers. Activity 2 will involve producing introductory videos to accompany each of these. Activity 3 will involve hosting two webinars, one for Modern Studies learners and one for Modern Studies teachers; these webinars will involve our team answering pre-submitted questions on crime, justice and the criminal justice system of relevance to the Modern Studies curriculum in Scotland. As part of this project, we are working with the Modern Studies Association, the professional body for Modern Studies teachers.

This is a collaborative project and in carrying out these activities, we aim to advance understandings of criminal justice theories, issues and challenges in the wider community, especially for those studying and teaching Modern Studies in Scotland. The project is expected to be complete by summer 2023.
