Course Description

About the course We aim to place participants in our course at the heart of the Scottish referendum debate. Participants will engage critically (and constructively) with the arguments of both sides and with each other, whilst being informed by input from leading Edinburgh University academics. In addition to weekly live-streamed Question Hour with a panel of experts, the course provides video explanations of key issues, interactive debates and role play exercises. The course begins three weeks before the referendum and also considers afterwards the implications of the result. It is structured around six main questions: Why is Scotland having a referendum? What does ‘Yes’ mean? What does ‘No’ mean? What do Scots think? The Day After What Next? Read more about examples which will be explored in the course, and its weekly live-streamed seminars, at Alan Convery’s blog post.
