Programme Leader for BA (Hons) Childhood Studies

I have worked and studied internationally. I came to the University of Sunderland in 2005 after working in Asia and North America.

Teaching and supervision

I am Programme Leader for BA (Hons) Childhood Studies.

I am Module Leader for CHS346 Equality and Diversity in Contemporary Society and CHS159 Values for the Professional Childhood Practitioner. I also teach on other modules.

I also teach on MSc Practice Development and supervise postgraduate students.


Research interests for potential research students

I am interested in multicultural and minority education, internationalisation of the curriculum, and higher education policy.

Research

My PhD investigated the international student experience within one geographical location. I utilised Bourdieu's concept of social and cultural capital as a conceptual framework to explore the students' experiences within university study and the communities in which they resided. I have also collaborated on a project with colleagues to explore how fundraising experience lead to communities of practice and improvement on student achievement.
