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.

As an edited text, Self-determined Learning is extremely accessible and easy to read. This should not be taken to imply that it is overly simplistic, but rather the focus for the book is the exploration of a number of projects and learning interventions that have taken place in a variety of locations and times. There are chapters on postgraduate learning, learning through new technologies, workplace learning, action research and learner-centred learning, creativity, lifelong learning and early years, to name but a few.
