Dr Charis Manousou recently joined the University of West Scotland as a Lecturer in MEd, London Campus. Charis has extensive experience in various posts within different sectors of Education, including working as a Lecturer at the University of Nicosia, a research assistant at the UCL Knowledge Lab, a mentor at the Department of Education, University of Thessaly and a Learning Coach at Kingston College. She started her teaching career as a Primary school teacher in her home country Greece.
She holds a BA in Primary Education and an MSc in Education in Contemporary Learning Environments from the University of Thessaly, Greece. Her passion and commitment for Inclusion and Social Justice in educational environments motivated her to conduct her PhD in Intercultural Education at the University of Thessaly, Greece (mixed methods research study). Her PhD thesis explores the features of multicultural encounters and the dynamics of social relations of native and immigrant students within primary school as well as their perceptions of 'other' in an attempt to uncover prejudice and stereotypes and form a common sense of belonging through the implementation of intercultural learning environments.
Research-led learning has been at the heart of her teaching. Her main focus has been centred around intercultural learning environments, intercultural competence and communication, immigrant students, the classroom as a community of inquiry, as well as innovative ways of teaching and learning in PE.
