Research title: Examining the effectiveness of agricultural experiences as part of Scottish Secondary School Pupils’ interdisciplinary learning under the Curriculum for Excellence (CfE).

Research Summary

I am researching agricultural experiences at secondary school level, and examining where these could be best employed and linked to outdoor learning opportunities.  

I am investigating this from different perspectives, and exploring the benefits and/or challenges that may arise, and any differences between urban and rural stakeholders.
