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.

Bayesian probability theory offers a powerful framework for the calibration of building energy models (Bayesian calibration). The major issues impeding its routine adoption are its steep learning curve, and the complicated setting up of the required calculation. This paper introduces CALIBRO, an R package which has the objective of facilitating the undertaking of Bayesian calibration of building energy models. An overview of the techniques and procedures involved in CALIBRO is given, as well as demonstrations of its capability and reliability through two examples.
