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.

Scientific education - what a noble word. Hardly anyone would deny that this is not only a questionable, but also a necessary matter. Here, however, two concepts are combined which, like no other, have an aura of sublime and positivity. Together, they spread a glow that hardly anyone can escape. And with which so many people may well adorn themselves in times when glamor seems to be more relevant than the substance from which that splendor (unfortunately only supposedly) proceeds. And this always with regard to those two phenomena to which this radiant word of scientific education refers: science and education.
