I joined the Open University in Wales team in September 2020. Since starting in my role as a Primary Curriculum Tutor, and the Wales PGCE course, it has been a pleasure to get to know our students and working with them and our partner schools. In addition, I feel privileged to be able to continue to work in the field of education in Wales – doing so at such an exciting time in terms of curriculum developments.
My research interests are attitudes and mindset; cross-curricular teaching and pupil groupings. Recently, I have been researching children and young people's use of technology and its potential impact on their health and wellbeing – something that has become increasingly relevant as a result of Covid-19.
