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 ICT-CMAC (Intelligent Decision Support and Control Technologies for Continuous Manufacture and Crystallisation) project has built, as part of the overall intelligent decision support platform, a researcher focused laboratory data handling platform. Here we report the approaches taken to capture data directly from instruments, process, store and report this into our ELN (Electronic Laboratory Notebook). This seamless flow of data eliminates errors and greatly reduces the need for manual, routine post-process analysis. Case studies are described to demonstrate the efficiency of this platform and to highlight the advantages of structured data with the potential of future machine learning and intelligent decision support.
