Dr Fiona Patrick
- Lecturer (Culture, Literacies, Inclusion & Pedagogy)
I have a range of research interests including teacher education and professional identity development, and education theory (particularly the work of Michel Foucault and Henry Giroux). My most recent publications focus on the effects of neoliberalism on higher education and learning, and teacher understanding and confidence in STEM education. I am also conducting research with my colleague Fiona McGregor on the development of professional identity among teachers of aesthetic subjects.
