Mansfield, Andrew – Curriculum Journal, 2019
This article discusses the challenges faced teaching the promotion of 'British values', especially for trainee teachers. The advancement of these 'British values' as set out by the Department for Education is confusing, contradictory, and appear to exclude a sizeable minority of pupils of minority backgrounds from the current historical narrative…

Mittelmeier, Jenna; Long, Dianne; Cin, Firdevs Melis; Reedy, Katharine; Gunter, Ashley; Raghuram, Parvati; Rienties, Bart – Open Learning, 2018

Goulder, Raymond; Scott, Graham W. – Journal of Biological Education, 2016
Reviews of the state of biology fieldwork in UK schools and universities at the beginning of the twenty-first century (Barker, Slingsby, and Tilling 2002; Smith 2004) were not entirely pessimistic; rather they suggested ways forward that might lead to an increase in fieldwork. Whether their hopes have been realised has, perhaps, been revealed by…

Scott Jones, Julie; Goldring, John E. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2015
Initiatives, like the UK ESRC's RDI/CI programmes and the Q-Step Centres, have a long-term aim of addressing the well-documented decline in the pool of academics able and willing to teach quantitative methods (QM). However, these initiatives will take time to make an impact; therefore, the upskilling of current staff is a vital strategy if we want…
