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

Since the first edition of Scottish Education was published in 1999 the world of professional development for teachers in Scotland has changed considerably - a pattern that looks likely to continue for the foreseeable future. This chapter will therefore focus on current issues and implications for the future; the equivalent chapter in the first edition provides a more detailed exploration of the historical background.
