About the author (2012)

I am Professor of Pedagogy, Policy and Innovation in the School of Education and my teaching and research focuses on the role of inquiry in teachers’ professional learning. I am interested in the role of universities, and teacher educators in particular, in the creation and translation of knowledge about teaching and learning. This interest is linked to the wider issue of the relationship between theory and practice in professional development.

Expertise: qualitative and quantitative measures, research design, narrative interviewing, questionnaire design, analytic frameworks, research management.
Research interests: early literacy and language development, parental involvement, adult literacy and family literacy, teacher development and identity, learning and meta-cognition.
