Current research activities

Co-author of paper submitted to SER special issue on Sustainability: Primary education students’ engagement with socio-scientific discussion as an approach to learning for sustainability

Writing paper for SER special issue on Play (submission September 2019): Play as a mode of capability development in upper primary

In the current year, I'm aiming to undertake a small research study looking at the impact of outdoor learning on the attainment gap.  Have some partners who may be able to help turn this into a pilot study but proposal and funding still have to be created and secured.

Desired research direction

Broadly, studies looking at how pedagogy can help/hinder the development of the Self.  This manifests most often in research into outdoor learning and play.

Target collaborative companies

Have had productive encounters with:

  • Timberplay Scotland
  • Eco Drama
  • East Ayrshire's COACh team

Other areas of expertise available for knowledge exchange

  • Supporting LGBT learners/children of LGBT families
  • Literacy education
  • Learning for Sustainability
