Here you will find information on SAGE Catalyst, including the title list and how to use Talis Elevate in teaching.
What is SAGE Catalyst?
SAGE Catalyst is a new teaching and learning tool providing unlimited, university-wide access to over 700 SAGE premium social science textbooks. It enables blended learning through virtual collaboration, classroom discussion, and peer-to-peer learning within the textbooks and other multi-media resources – powered by Talis Elevate.
Faculty can embed chapters directly in their Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) or Learning Management System (LMS) and view analytics at course, resource, and student level. This gives valuable insight into student engagement, while also providing equitable access to core texts across ten disciplines, including business & management, research methods, education, psychology, and more.
What are the benefits for faculty?
How to access the eTextbooks
You can access the SAGE Catalyst textbook collection in two main ways:
We regularly run introductory and training sessions for social science faculty/academics of SAGE Catalyst customers. We highly recommend that you join these sessions to get started with SAGE Catalyst and find out how to use the Talis Elevate component of SAGE Catalyst within your teaching. The dates for the next upcoming sessions are below and we regularly update these. If you want to train an entire department or group of 10+ faculty at your institution, get in touch with our support team about a bespoke session.
Upcoming Practical Training Sessions
If you, or any of your faculty, aren't able to make the dates for the upcoming training sessions, or would like to learn in your own time, you can watch the recordings of our past sessions.
