SAGE Campus Expands to Online Learning for Skills and Research Methods 

October 7, 2020 1797

SAGE Publishing, the parent of Social Science Space, is expanding its SAGE Campus product from its original focus on online data science courses to now offer high quality support for the teaching and learning of a wide range of skills and research methods that can be applied across all stages of academic study — from undergraduates looking to critically assess information to researchers looking to report their data and publish their research. 

Teaching social research methods and supporting the development of skills for study and research is more challenging than it ever has been. Institutions must ensure students and researchers are data literate and equip them with an array of new skills to navigate the changing worlds of research and publishing, all while managing drastic changes in the world of higher education itself.  

These skills take significant practice to hone and data literacy takes time to develop, and without having access to the physical classrooms or shared spaces faculty are used to, this is even more challenging. As faculty’s limited class time is under more pressure, the resources we create for institutions need to support their students, researchers and faculty better than ever. 

To support the teaching and learning of skills and research methods across all stages of academic study, SAGE Campus is publishing 18 new courses in 2021 – growing the full SAGE Campus suite to 29 courses and over 250 hours of learning time. The suite includes courses on critical thinking, data literacy, research planning, data analysis and publishing your research. SAGE Campus has identified some of the most difficult and pivotal moments in the academic experience, and designed courses to support learners to come through these and excel.

The future suite of 250+ hours of SAGE Campus courses cover topics along the below content pathway; some of the most difficult and pivotal moments in the academic experience. 

“Our new platform,” said Rachel Crookes, head of SAGE Campus, “has enhanced functionality to make it easy for librarians and faculty to administer, and the courses have been designed with the learner in mind.” 

In addition to the new courses, the SAGE Campus platform has been significantly updated to be made available as a digital library resource. As with other SAGE Digital Library Products, libraries can get institution-wide access to SAGE Campus via IP, EzProxy, Shibboleth and OpenAthens authentication.  

Since SAGE launched SAGE Campus online data science courses in September 2017, it has helped thousands of social scientists learn new skills to work with big data and new computational methods. This September marks the close of the individual purchase options for SAGE Campus courses and the last ever individual cohorts started on September 7.

Sage, the parent of Social Science Space, is a global academic publisher of books, journals, and library resources with a growing range of technologies to enable discovery, access, and engagement. Believing that research and education are critical in shaping society, 24-year-old Sara Miller McCune founded Sage in 1965. Today, we are controlled by a group of trustees charged with maintaining our independence and mission indefinitely.
