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.

Abstract

Glasgow City Council commissioned the delivery of the Exploring Pedagogy in Primary 1 (EPP1) professional development programme (PDP) to continue its commitment to raising children's educational attainment in schools as part of the Scottish Attainment Challenge Initiative. The EPP1 project aimed to improve learning experiences through a targeted professional development programme exploring pedagogical approaches and theories to inform practice in the early years. The project ran from June 2017 to June 2018 and involved a total of 18 teachers and practitioners from across five schools in Glasgow City Council. During this time, the teachers participated in an 8-week PDP designed, delivered and evaluated by the University of Strathclyde. The evaluation strand of the project evaluated the effectiveness of the EPP1 programme by examining its impact on children's learning experiences and teachers' thinking and practice, through a series of questionnaires, classroom observations and group discussions.
