Personal profile

Research interests

My main areas of research interest lie within the realm of the history and development of English curriculum, pedagogy and assessment. In addition I&rsquo;m interested in the work of subject associations and teachers&rsquo; professional life histories. These interests form the basis of my current PhD research on the history, significance and influence of the London Association for the Teaching of English in the development of subject English. As a teacher educator, I&rsquo;m also concerned with the development of subject knowledge, and have recently received TDA funding as part of a project to enhance subject knowledge training for graduates following work based routes into teaching, and funding to produce web-based materials for fellow English initial teacher educators.<br />
