Personal profile

Research interests (short)

My research is in science education, outdoor teaching and pre-service and in-service professional development. I am interested in how teacher’s beliefs and teacher self-efficacy interact to influence teaching behaviours, particularly when teaching outside. Furthermore, I am interested in how professional development programmes impact teachers' decision-making.
