Research

Research Overview

My main research interest is in the preparation of student teachers for social justice and inclusion.  I also have a keen interest in phenomenology (the study of lived experiences and the meanings individuals attribute to these experiences).

Current Research

Scottish Council of the Deans of Education (SCDE) Attainment Challenge Project:  Developing pedagogies that work for Pre-Service and Early Career Teachers to reduce the Attainment Gap in Literacy, Numeracy and Health and Wellbeing.  This project aims to equip early career teachers (final year ITE and induction year) to work effectively to improve engagement and attainment in schools serving pupils from SIMD 1-40 backgrounds.  Eight Schools of Education across Scotland are involved in this project funded by Scottish Government for a duration of three years. 

As part of the above SCDE project, along with Dr Dean Robson, Dr Peter Mtika and Mrs Lindsay MacDougall, we are researching, Experiences of Induction Year Teachers in High Poverty Context Schools.  This project aims (i) to surface the enablers and barriers to Induction year teachers’ enactment of Inclusive Pedagogy, in high poverty context schools and (ii) to examine how these different influences shape Induction Year teachers’ responses to the difficulties faced by children and young people living in poverty and deprivation. 

The Scottish Universities Inclusion Group (SUIG) Mapping Project.  This project aims (i) to provide a comprehensive picture of inclusive pedagogy in initial teacher education across Scotland; (ii) to be able to respond to requests regarding the preparation of teachers to teach children with a range of Additional Support Needs; and (iii) to consider the ways in which inclusive pedagogy underpins initial teacher education.  Eight Schools of Education across Scotland are involved in this project. 

Along with Dr Kirsten Darling-McQuistan we are, Exploring teacher educators’ enactment of inclusive pedagogies in Initial Teacher Education.  This project aims to investigate in what way(s) teacher educators promote inclusion/inclusive pedagogy in Initial Teacher Education.
