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 steady adoption of podcasting within the academic sector has opened up a new range of teaching and promotional opportunities for institutions seeking to retain the interest of the 'point and click' generation. Modern students are not excited by the prospect of sitting in large lecture theatres at a time designated by the lecturer, but prefer to access information via computers or hand-held technologies, at times they choose - video streaming, social networking sites, wikis and blogs are all being added to the portfolio of educational delivery methods in addition to the podcast.
