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.

The Present Study used parents as key stakeholders and a phenomenological approach to examine parent perceptions of Right Click, an online, telehealth training programme that supports parents in their understanding of ASD. As the Right Click parent programme is designed as self-referring and self-directed learning support; the specific research questions for this study included (1) What are parents’ general perceptions of Right Click? (2) How does Right Click support family wellbeing and parent coping? (3) How do these experiences inform receptivity of Right Click as a parent intervention? From the interviews participants clearly see Right Click as a useful, valuable resource and recognised that, certainly for Scottish families (predominant sample) that it is the most extensive one stop resource available of its kind for parents.
