Teaching and supervision
I work across various modules on both Primary Education and Education Studies marking, teaching and supporting students with their school experience modules. I am module leader for two Education Studies modules – Sociology of Education and History and Purpose of Education, as well as a dissertation supervisor for many of our students.
I am also currently PHSE lead for the primary team and Year 3 lead in addition to a personal academic tutor for all year groups. Within the primary team, I deliver many of the PHSE and PE sessions, alongside some professional learning sessions focusing on learning styles and research methods.
I also work with the MA team, teaching international students and supporting them to carry out their own research leading modules M01 and M97.
Research interests for potential research students
As well as supervising dissertation students and supporting international students to complete their own research as part of the MA course, I am also actively involved in research myself. I have published research focusing on assessment and I am currently involved in a project looking at the impact of recent centre assessment grades during the Covid-19 pandemic.
I also have a research interest in the hidden curriculum and alternative education provision and hope to develop this further in the future.
As my background is alternative provision, I enjoy researching further into this area looking at alternative approaches to engaging learning and the processes that go alongside this. I also have researched and published around assessment and the impact this can have on students.
