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 digitisation of healthcare has been on the European agenda to modernise and improve healthcare across the member states. The focus in Europe has switched from developing technology to implementing digital health and ehealth. The digital skills for health professional's (HCPs) committee has surveyed over 200 health professionals. It has discovered no change has resulted in the education of HCPs to prepare them for said implementation. The EU risks spending time and resources on strategies that will have little effect due to the lack of change.
