Overview

I am professor of science and environmental education in the Graduate School of Education. I joined Exeter in January 2018 after spending three years at the University of Bristol as Head of the Graduate School of Education. I am currently one of the Directors of Doctoral Studies.

After taking a degree in chemistry, I trained as a teacher and taught in six London schools before joining King’s College London in 1989 as a teacher educator and researcher. During my 26 years there I was involved in a number of research and development projects working with schools, museums, science centres, aquariums and botanic gardens.

I was President of the European Association for Research in Science Education from 2007-11 and am currently President of the National Association for Environmental Education and a trustee of the Council for Learning Outside the Classroom. I co-edited the first ever International Handbook on Research in Environmental Education.

Research

Research interests

I focus on the overlap between science and environmental education. My particular interests are in learning out of school in, for example, museums, science centres and botanic gardens. I would be very interested in talking to potential doctoral students interested in any aspect of STEM education in and outside the school environment.

I was part of the ESRC funded ASPIRES project and was co-director of the ESRC Targeted Initiative In Science and Mathematics Education (TISME). I also worked on the Enterprising Science Project. All these projects looked at ways to improve school pupil engagement with STEM subjects.

Research projects

Together with Dr Nathan Mayne (Physics), I work on Exploratory Engagement Exploring Exoplanets (4EP) which aims to expand the methods through which students aged 11–18 years engage with science through novel use of cutting-edge digital and immersive media and computer gaming.

I also work on Ocean Connections, a Europe-wide project which is developing innovative digital tools that employ creative pedagogies to develop pupils' 'Ocean Literacy'. This project is led by Dr Lindsay Hetherington.

I am also working on a rapid synthesis of the evidence on the characteristics that appear to be common to many broadly successful school-based learning experiences in natural environments (including residentials) for The Wildlife Trusts.

Research networks

I am President of the National Association for Environmental Education and a trustee of the Council ffor Learning Outside the Classroom. I am on the Education Committee of the Royal Horticultural Society.

I am a member of the following organisations:

American Educational Research Association (AERA);

Association for Science Education (ASE);

British Educational Research Association (BERA);

European Science Education Research Association (ESERA);

Royal Society of Biology (RSB);

Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC).

Teaching

I teach on the Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) primary and secondary programmes. As well as teaching on the PGCE I also have personal tutees.

I work on the Leading and Managing Change module which is part of the Keypath master's programme.

I teach on the taught doctorate (EdD) a programme aimed particularly at practioners in school and medical education.
