I’m a Senior Lecturer (Education Focused), in the School of Psychology and Neuroscience and have been here since 1992. I’m interested in research methods teaching, critical reasoning, science communication and Growth Mindset. I have recently completed two significant projects (1) an evaluation of Readiness for Learning in primary schools, and (2) a review of NHSGGC Trauma Informed Practice Training Needs Assessment Final Report. My Master’s student has just successfully completed her research project on Mastery Learning in secondary schools so it is an exciting time for us.
