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

Information and communications technology in professional legal education courses is perceived as problematic for teachers and course designers. It is so not because technology is inherently difficult or strange, but because at a deep level it threatens our practice and our identity as teachers. However the contextual challenges of our position, caught between academy and practice, may actually help us to take account of new technologies. The paper discusses this proposal, using the examples of two different types of discussion forums, and suggests that one way forward for us is to create our own community of practice in the use of ICT in professional legal learning.
