Ms Elizabeth Black
- Lecturer in Leadership and Management in Childhood Practice (Educational Leadership & Policy)
I joined the University of Glasgow in January 2017 from a professional background in early learning and childcare, having worked with children and young people aged 0 - 14 in various practitioner, leadership and management roles. I have worked in early years in the Czech Republic and benefitted from placement experience in the Netherlands. My undergraduate study of Social Policy informs my understanding of Childhood Practice as a policy-driven field. More recently, my Masters dissertation focused on childcare practitioners’ perceptions of numeracy.
In relation to scholarship of teaching and learning, I am currently investigating aspects of online learning and feedback literacy.
With the University of Glasgow Childhood Practice teaching team, I am currently researching the impact of the Standard for Childhood Practice.
I am also interested in modern apprentices’ professional identities, early numeracy, and the role of subject knowledge in early years practice.
I supervise students on the MEd Childhood Practice and MSc Educational Studies programmes.
