Research

Research interests

Current research interests include Culturally Responsive Pedagogy, Critical Intercultural Learning, De/colonizing pedagogies.

Research projects

2019-2021, Co-Investigator, De/colonizing Teacher Education. Principle Investigator Professor Pirbhai-Illich, University of Regina, Canada.

2016, Young People on the Global Stage - Europe Aid funding to conduct research on the YPOGS project with a focus on Intercultural Learning and teachers' professional development.

2013-2015. Research partner on Ethical Internationalism in Higher Education (EIHE), led by Professor Vanessa de Oliveira Andreotti, The University of Oulu, and funded by the Finish Research Council.

2009-2013, Principle Investigator, ESRC project: 'Global Partnerships as sites for mutual learning: teachers' professional development through study visits'. The project built on a pilot study conducted in 2006-07 and a consultation phase in 2007-08 that was supported by a small-scale British Academy grant. The research investigated the learning of professionals in the UK, Gambia and Southern India. 

2008-2009, A collaborative pilot project with geography teacher educator colleagues at Oxford Brookes University, the Geographical Association and Stranmillis University, Northern Ireland, explored the geographical memories that prompted primary teachers to specialise in geography. The methodological approach was similar to Significant Life Experience research that has been conducted in the field of Environmental Education. 

Research grants

  • 2009 Europe Aid
    Young People on the Global Stage: their education and influence (YPOGS): The intercultural dimension. In what ways do intercultural factors affect how a group of teachers work together when looking at questions about global issues of hunger, poverty and sustainability?
  • 2009 ESRC
    Global Partnerships as Sites for Mutual Learning: teachers' professional development through North-South study visits.
  • 2007 The British Academy
    The grant has been awarded to support the dissemination of findings of pilot project and subsequent consultation with interested parties in order to develop a major research project proposal to investigate the processes involved in teacher development in the areas of sustainable development and global partnerships.
