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.

This week Laura our RKEO attended the Digital Health and Care Conference organised by Holyrood Connect and sponsored by InterSystems. This year there was a strong focus on the paradigm shift of care from centralised systems into the peripheries of the community and the need for services to integrate more widely. Over the course of the two days, there were various speakers each contributing to the theme of integrated and person-centred care. Our Programme manager Chaloner Chute gave an ‘art of the possible’ presentation demonstrating how the re-design of services could impact care and specifically how this could benefit the citizen at the heart of the care model. Several break-out sessions were also held to give focussed insights into the work that various groups are doing in the digital and care landscape in Scotland.
