taught in two schools and two universities, I enjoy bringing practical
experience to the programme as well as recent research. Most of my BA (Hons) Education
Studies teaching draws from sociology and history, looking at how education has
been, how it is now and how it could be in the future. My research uses feature
films as academic texts, and so I use film/TV clips alongside academic
literature and discussion, to get underneath questions such as ‘is educating
boys and girls together the best thing to do or just what we’re used to doing?
Academic staff profiles
(Hons) Education Studies is an education in itself. It’s also a good platform
from which to later apply for a teacher training course. The course analyses
big questions in education relevant to everyone. What’s the point of education? Have standards risen or fallen? Is assessment fair? Should students pay tuition
fees? The course draws upon academic literature, current affairs, film,
television and personal experiences to make issues come to life.
