I am a module leader for 4 modules in PCE, as well as the University link tutor for a local college and I also work in collaboration with several partner colleges.

Research interests

Research interests include: exploring and understanding the self-as-teacher in post 14 education. Research in this area includes notions of individual and collaborative action in shared reflective dialogues and negotiated discursive practices in the politics and policy of being self-as-teacher. Research is generally in the phenomenological field of the rich and varied lived experiences as self-as-teacher during a PGCE in PCE and the NQT year.
