Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Abstract

This special issue of Teaching and Teacher Education is dedicated to work undertaken as part of the Teaching and Learning Research Programme (TLRP), a major investment in education research in the United Kingdom. The generic phase of TLRP ran from 1999 until 2009, with some additional projects on technology enhanced learning (TEL) continuing into 2012. Total funds of nearly £40 million were provided by a range of national bodies including the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) (which coordinated the programme), the Higher Education Funding Council for England, and the governments of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, and, for the TEL phase, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
