Overview

I am currently Director of the PGCE Primary programme.  I lecture on the PGCE Primary and MA Creative Arts in Education programmes, and supervise MA, PhD and EdD students in researching various aspects of primary and/or visual arts education. 

Previously a primary and early years teacher, I began lecturing part-time at Exeter in 2005 and full time in 2010.  A holistic understanding of visual literacy informs my academic practice and, with a degree in architecture, I am passionate about the potential of drawing as a tool for learning.  My research interests encompass drawing, reflective practice, professional learning, communication, and creativity. 

I am a Council and Forum Member of the National Society for Education in Art and Design (NSEAD), and Co-ordinator of the NSEAD Regional Network Group, Exeter Area Art Educators.  I am also currently a Board Member of Spacex  Other recent positions were as a Member of the National Expert Subject Advisory Group for Art and Design Education, Member of the NSEAD Publications Board, and a South West Regional Network Co-ordinator for the Cambridge Primary Review Trust.

Research

Research interests

My research interests are situated within the broad field of 'art education', with a particular focus on art in primary schools. I am also very interested in teachers' professional learning (both ITE and CPD), interpretive methodologies and visual research methods.  Lesson Study is a recent research interest.

In my PhD research (Hall, 2010) I sought to explore the communicative potential of young children's drawings by making case studies of children (aged 4-6) in an early years class. This research built on the work of those who have used socio-cultural theories to investigate the influence of context on young children's drawing, meaning making, and representation at home and in school.
