Professional learning, particularly teacher education. Master's level learning, early career phase professional learning, initial and professional education partnerships
I am currently Director of Initial Teacher Education and Director of Central Local Authority and Stirling Partnership (CLASP). Prior to working at Stirling, I taught across a range of Undergraduate and Postgraduate Initial Teacher Education and Professional Masters in Education Programmes at Christ Church Canterbury University and the University of Cumbria. My Doctoral thesis explored the policy trajectories which influenced the co-construction and enactment of the science curriculum in English primary schools during the implementation of the Primary National Curriculum. Since completing my thesis, My research has focused on teacher's professional learning and educational partnerships. I am interested in the way policy initiatives shape and influence teacher education and inter-professional learning.
