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

The creation of a pilot memoryscape and video were made to demonstrate how the research undertaken by the SOHC can be disseminated more dynamically to wider audiences. For example, memoryscape can help deliver narratives on history, heritage and landscape and can be easily updated and used in many locations. It is envisaged that by utilising memoryscape there will be a greater engagement with the general public which will help to create impact beyond academia. It may also have potential for commercial application. The learning outcomes of this project will be of benefit for: • expanding the skills base within the SOHC • disseminating learning outcomes at future SOHC training seminars • use within the forthcoming undergraduate oral history course • use on new SOHC web pages • use within future oral history projects.
