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 Healthcare Improvement Scotland (HIS) Executive team held a meeting at the DHI Maxim offices on the 19th January 2016. HIS had requested to find out more about the DHI and its innovation process, and to gauge collaboration opportunities with the DHI. The Research and Knowledge Exchange team (TD, SR, AW) prepared an interactive Exploratory/design workshop for the afternoon on topics identified as relevant by the HIS-team: Innovative solutions for frail people in the community and preventing admissions to the hospital. Members of the Project team and the Laboratory team assisted in preparing and running of the event. The preparations included planning the design of the workshop, interviewing a real-life patient for a case-study to be used in the workshop, and preparing the workshop materials (SR, AW).
