Open Access research that is helping to improve educational outcomes for children

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Education, including those researching educational and social practices in curricular subjects. Research in this area seeks to understand the complex influences that increase curricula capacity and engagement by studying how curriculum practices relate to cultural, intellectual and social practices in and out of schools and nurseries.

Research at the School of Education also spans a number of other areas, including inclusive pedagogy, philosophy of education, health and wellbeing within health-related aspects of education (e.g. physical education and sport pedagogy, autism and technology, counselling education, and pedagogies for mental and emotional health), languages education, and other areas.

In pondering how best to approach the task of writing this editorial, I took the opportunity to peruse some of the very earliest editorials written for the journal in the mid to late 1970s, when it was called the British Journal of In-Service Education. What struck me was that while some of the terminology has changed and the context and reach of the journal have undoubtedly widened, the issues being raised by the then editors bear striking similarity to issues concerning us now, in early 2013.
