Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

CBL is increasingly being used to deliver programmes of study in Higher Education. This paper argues that while there is value to be gained from the use of CBL materials in Higher Education, it is also increasingly important to recognise and cater for the paradigm shift regarding the nature of students in Higher Education and argues a case for the importance of a holistic approach to the design and use of CBL materials. It discusses the findings of a study which focuses on the development and implementation of CBL at the University of Strathclyde.
