Overview

I have worked in Education for 20 years, enjoying a wide range of senior leadership roles within academia, policy development and the statutory school sector. I am passionate about Educational Practice and work closely with schools and teachers in Wales and internationally to think about professional learning, educative mentoring and research engagement to support classroom practice and meet learner needs.

I was delighted to be awarded a National Teaching Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy in 2018 and was elected to the International Committee of the International Professioanl Development Association (IPDA). In 2019 I also became chair of IPDA Cymru.

My research interests are focused around educational practice, professional learning, educative mentoring and the recruitment and retention of education professionals. 

Teaching

I currently teach on a range of programmes for the School and University.

Including:

Academic Lead - Innovative Teaching Practice Programme (Guizhou University)

Academic Lead - Innovative Teaching Practice Programme (Xuzhou Medical University)

and Education UG and PG programmes in the School of Social Sciences

My research interests are focused around educational practice, professional learning, educative mentoring and the recruitment and retention of education professionals.
