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.

Abstract

The first two papers in this series posed the questions, Why leadership at all levels? and Why now?, drawing from the Scottish policy context and changing conceptualisations of leadership over time. This paper focusses upon the international perspective, drawing from the OECD [Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development] Report, ‘Preparing teachers and developing school leaders for the 21st century: Lessons from around the world.’ [1] The report draws from the OECD’s ‘Programme for International Student Assessment’ (PISA) (2009).
