Biography

Lauren has a background in higher education and as a teacher of physics and science in Scotland, having undertaken her first degree in physics at the University of Strathclyde and teacher education (PGCE in physics with science) at Dundee University.  During a two-year secondment to Learning & Teaching Scotland and Education Scotland, Lauren had responsibility at a national level for developments in sciences (STEM) for 3 - 18 year olds including the STEM Central project, and involvement in development of the new National Qualifications in sciences (biology, chemistry, environmental science and physics).

Lauren completed her PhD in science education at Trinity College, Dublin exploring children's learning in science beyond the teacher-led, involving 1100 children in 13 primary and secondary schools in five Scottish local authorities, using a children’s rights-based approach to children’s voice, underpinned by Vygotsky’s cultural-historical theory.

In her role as a Lecturer in Education at the University of Dundee, Lauren had key responsibility in the oversight of development, accreditation and implementation of an innovative route into secondary teaching in Chemistry, Computing, Home Economics, Mathematics and Physics, integrating initial teacher education with the General Teaching Council for Scotland Teacher Induction Scheme (TIS). Other leadership responsibility included roles as assessment convener and module leader for Masters-level academic modules and professional practice (placement) modules.

As Senior Lecturer in Education (Physics and Science) in the University of Glasgow's School of Education, Lauren continues to be responsible for developing beginning and qualified teachers, both within science and more widely across Master's level programmes. As Director of Initial Teacher Education and Undergraduate (2021-2024), Lauren had broader responsibility for the ITE and undergraduate portfolio in the School of Education. In April 2024, Lauren began her new role as International Accreditation Lead for Initial Teacher Education for the School of Education.

Teaching

In 2023/24, Lauren's main focus has been in the role of Academic Lead and Managing Editor of the Periodic Subject Review in Education, as well as continuing to supervise PhD students and having oversight of the sciences within the curriculum enquiry strand of the undergraduate integrated Masters ITE programme and within the Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) in the Curriculum, Pedagogies and Practice courses for Primary and for Secondary students. 

Lauren has been Course Leader for:

  • Year 5 Dissertations for students in the undegraduate integrated Master of Education (Primary Education) with Teaching Qualification (MEduc);
  • Curriculum, Assessment and Pedagogy: Understanding Learners, an optional course within the MSc Education (online distance learning) programme;
  • the Masters-level PGDE course 'Understanding Learning and Teaching';

as well as teaching, assessing and supervising within

  • PGDE 'Understanding Learning and Teaching' and 'Professional Enquiry' courses;
  • PGDE 'Learning & Teaching in the Primary / Secondary' (BGE science for primary and secondary) including exploration and building upon children's existing ideas of science, science pedagogies beyond the content exploring nature connection and empathy in science learning;
  • MEduc Year 5 (Education in Practice seminars, dissertation supervision);
  • MEduc (BGE science for primary in Years 2-4, interdisciplinary learning through arts, drama and science, focusing on the intersection of science and human rights ('being human') and exploring the environment through nature connection and empathy);
  • MEd Professional Practice with PGDE (Professional Enquiry and Decision Making, dissertation supervision);
  • MSc Educational Studies (Contemporary Issues seminars, dissertation supervision).

Lauren supported colleagues in the 2021 review and successful reaccreditation of the Postgraduate Dipoma in Education, in particular focussing on the new Research & Enquiry-Led Learning and Teaching course, a core 30 credit Masters-level course within the PGDE. She has developed and delivered Master’s-level learning in primary science teaching for early-career teachers, funded by Scottish Government. Lauren has also supported teachers undertaking mentoring roles within schools, including those participating in Master's-level learning about mentoring and coaching.

Participation by invitation

'STEM' education: what's the problem, what's the solution? at the 23rd Science and the Parliament event in Edinburgh, hosted at Dynamic Earth on 22 November 2023.

Dr Boath was invited to join a panel, comprising four presentations and Q&A from an audience of around 200 members including keynote speakers, the President of the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Minister for Higher and Further Education. Panel members Professor Martin Hendry, Headteacher Bruce Robertson, Chair of the Royal Society of Edinburgh Education Committee (and formerly Chief Executive of the SQA) Dr Janet Brown, spoke to the theme of STEM Education. In her contribution, Lauren presented thinking on the direction of travel of education in sciences, technologies, engineering and mathematics, and the impact of policy pursuit of STEM, lacking an evidence base or pedagogical meaning, on learning and teaching in schools which meets the needs of diverse learners. Challenging the view of a ‘pipeline’ for developing the workforce, Lauren questioned the privileging of STEM subjects and whether our attempts to promote may be doing more harm than good, in schools and in building the right skills and dispositions for future citizens, and beginning teachers.
