Research can positively change practice and benefit students, colleagues and educational organisations.
My research interests include:
- Conceptions of the personal tutor as educational emancipator through the critical lenses of Paulo Freire and Antonio Gramsci
- The impact personal tutoring and coaching can have on students and, more broadly, institutions
- The relationship between personal tutoring and teaching
- Personal tutoring roles, support processes and systems
- The relationship between students’ emotional well-being and academic progress
- Student/staff partnership and collaborative inquiry
