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.

There is a huge need for remote monitoring capabilities in today’s healthcare system to reduce the strain on our services and allow people to remain in their homes for longer thus reducing costs and maintaining peoples’ quality of life. Policy-makers and the healthcare industry leaders must come together to find the most suitable route for which to implement these innovations. Scotland is already driving change in this area with over 100 active companies in the digital healthcare industry. The use of remote patient monitoring capabilities allows for the development of personalised care plans whereby medication/care can be adjusted based on the data collected about that person.
