ISO repository of teaching materials

The ISO repository of teaching materials is a list of existing teaching materials on standardization, with details of the authors and publishers. Teachers and standards professionals can use this tool to access information that can help them in designing and delivering courses on standards matters. In addition, the repository will help optimize the use of resources, facilitate the re-use of existing materials and highlight new subject matters to be addressed in the future.

These resources cover education at the university-level as well as education about standardization at primary and secondary level.

Please note, the majority of material in these repositories is not published by ISO. Please contact the publisher in order to find out more about how to use this material, licensing fees etc.
