Personal profile

Research interests

I am currently investigating activities for use in the outdoor classroom which incorporate assessment for learning approaches and which promote cognitive conflict. The project, ‘Border Crossings’ is an extension of "Thinking beyond the Urban Classroom"; and is funded by the AstraZeneca Science Teaching Trust (£34k) and involves Melissa Glackin, Natasha Serret, Christine Harrison & Clive Kanes. The project is a collaborative between King’s, the Field Studies Council, Hampshire Council and Southampton University.

My research interests, generally, include environmental education and learning science in informal contexts. I have recently been responsible, together with Jonathan Osborne, Heather King and Andrés Acher (now at Northwestern University, USA) for evaluating aspects of the PENCIL project.

I also have interests in science teacher development and my PhD looked at "Professional Development in the Science Department and the Role of the Head of Department"
