Current and Recent Research Projects:

I have three major overlapping strands to my research. The first is the investigation of the conceptualisation of English as a school subject combined with understanding the values and professional identities of English teachers and student teachers. As English is such a broad subject my work has often focused on aspects of the subject as it changes, for example the role of Media Education and the impact of digital literacy. Recent projects have explored the attitudes of English teachers towards E-readers, the concept of literary reading and their reactions to policy changes.

A second strand is researching what we mean by 'expert teaching' and examining the various models that have been developed around the world. This strand has recently involved two large scale studies of the Advanced Skills Teacher model in England. Currently I am exploring how schools are planning to develop and retain their best teachers now that the AST designation has been abolished.

My third area is the dynamic relationship between education and new technologies. A recent study focused on 'digi-teachers', investigating how teachers have become identified by their peers as exceptionally effective users of technology in their teaching and what that meant for their pedagogy and their relationship with their students.
