Personal Statement

I am Professor of Education and Head of the School of Education and Social Work at the University of Sussex from November 2012  Initially I worked as a secondary school teacher of mathematics for fifteen years until moving into teacher education in 1988. In 1995 I completed my PhD in mathematics education on the topic of Group Work with Multimedia in the Secondary Mathematics Classroom. Subsequently I was awarded a Personal Chair as Professor of Education at Sheffield Hallam University in 2001 and a National Teaching Fellowship by the Higher Education Funding Council of England in 2004. I worked at Umeå University as Professor in Educational Work for ICT and Learning from 2005 to 2009 and theN at the University of Dundee until the end of October 2012.  At the present time I am Chair of the Teacher Education Policy in Europe (TEPE) Network; Chair of the Publications Committee of the College of Teachers; Associate Editor of the Journal of Curriculum Studies and represent the Scottish Educational Research Association (SERA) on the Council of the World Education Research Association (WERA).

ICT Interests

I worked with the National E-learning Centre of Sri Lanka at the University of Colombo School of Computing from 2007 to 2012. This project was supported through the Swedish Program for ICT in Developing Regions (SPIDER) and involved the supervision of a PhD studentship into assessment practices on a large distance education BSc programme in Information Technology. During 2008-09, I was leader of the course on ‘New Technologies of e-Learning' and of the Action Research framework as part of EC funded e-JUMP 2.0 Project ‘Implementing e-Learning 2.0 in Higher and Vocational Education'.
