Collaboration and Consultancy
Morag undertakes academic collaboration with a range of partners from across all sectors. This has resulted in academic and non-academic publications and outputs.
She undertakes a wide range of knowledge exchange activities such as lectures, talks, seminars, participation in steering groups, among others.
She has produced various publications and outputs, suitable to a broad range of audiences, in clear, accessible language.
Morag also undertakes a limited amount of consultancy activities. This ranges from helping organisations to identify research needs, guiding them through through the tendering process to find a suitable contractor, and overseeing the research through to the final submission. She also undertakes small research projects such as evaluations of projects or statistical analyses.
Morag has helped organisations to understand the often confused causes and consequences of child poverty and how it may impact on their workers – known as ‘poverty proofing’. She has undertaken this work in various forms, either directly, or by providing academic expertise. She has helped to develop a free-to-access module on Child Poverty, Health and Wellbeing, aimed at healthcare and education workers, available from NHS Health Scotland’s website (link to follow).
Her research with CPAG Scotland and the Educational Institute of Scotland has resulted in a film to be used for the initial education and continuing professional development of education workers in Scotland (see Media page).
