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.

In looking at how economic, political, sociocultural, and epistemological transformations are coterminous with notions and practices of gender and sexuality, this entry highlights women's generative role in the production of radical or reformist changes and examines the operations of power that derailed or subsumed women's social agendas within the new socioeconomic, cultural, and political regimes. The timeline of this analysis includes watershed moments in the history of the region such as the Russian Revolution, the end of World War II in 1945, the fall of state-socialist regimes in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) and of the Soviet Union in 1989, and extends across the European Union accession years for 10 CEE countries up until the global financial crises of the late 2000s and early 2010s.
