Activities per year
I am a Teaching Fellow in Digital Education in The Institute of Education at The University of Strathclyde. My interests lie in technology-enhanced teaching and learning, and span both theory and practice. Researching the development and implementation of effective digital pedagogies, the use of digital tools to enhance teaching and learning and the impact of research and innovation on present and future practice. I have been involved in research exploring ways in which student teachers can develop confidence and competence in applying digital pedagogy to select and use a range of digital tools to enhance learning and teaching and increase productivity. I am member of The Instutute of Education: Digital Pedagogy and Blended Learning Working Groups. Further interests also include AI and data literacy in Priamry education and the role of metacognition and self-regulation in relation to the use of technology to enhance, and potentially transform, teaching and learning ‘beyond the school gates’. As well as project managing the integration of digital education across the BA in Primary Education, I also teach on postgraduate courses. As a member of The Scottish Council of Deans of Education: Digital Teaching and Learning Group, I was responsible for co-authoring the National Framework for Digital Literacies in ITE (2020). I am also part of a Strathclyde Teaching Excellence Programme, faculty-wide group, exploring the use of social media and technology to enhance teaching and learning.
