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

An HEA research focus on Exploring the Distinctive Contribution of Higher Education to Teacher Education (Florian & Pantić 2013) has led to further studies. This project forms is one strand in the new programme, which also reflects UK moves to support teachers in becoming ‘discerning consumers’ of research (BERA 2014 p5), able to interpret and use it in their work. The project is concerned with student teacher response to and potential use of evidence on diversity and inclusion and effective teaching practices.
