Biography

Margaret worked as a primary teacher in Glasgow schools for many years before becoming a Network Support teacher in 1993, working in both primary and secondary schools in the south-west of Glasgow. She became Team Co-ordinator in 1998, a post held until the teams were disbanded in 2002. She then worked as an SEN (sic) Development Officer, covering schools across the north-east of the city until moving to work in the Department of Educational Studies at the University of Glasgow in 2004.

She has developed, taught on and convened a range of courses and programmes in Initial Teacher Education, many with a focus on inclusive education, being year co-ordinator for year 3 and then year 4 of the BEd programme between 2008 and 2017. She also taught on several courses within the MEd Inclusive Education, acting as Programme leader during session 2018-2019, and led the first course on the online EdD programme, Critical Reflection on Professional Practice for a number of years.  She was Disability Co-ordinator from 2008 - 2014 and Ethics Officer from 2014 - 2016. 

Between August 2009 and December 2010, she was seconded on a 0.2 basis to the then Learning and Teaching Centre, University of Glasgow (now LEADS) to work with colleages from the Colleges of Science and Engineering and MVLS to develop and deliver discipline-specific elements of the programme for new lecturers and teachers.

Margaret retired from full-time employment in the School of Education at the end of February 2021; she continues to work part-time as an Associate Tutor.

Margaret has worked extensively on one-to-one tuition with young people with dyslexia, and through the Adult Basic Education service. She also worked for two years as a nursing assistant in the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice, Glasgow.

Research interests

Margaret's EdD thesis, From school to faculty: stories of transition into teacher education (2009) was a narrative enquiry which identified important issues relating to disciplinary-specific aspects of learning and teaching, and to the development (or not) of professional identity. A number of her publications and conference papers relate to this area of research.

Other areas in which she has collaborated on research include: professional development of teacher educators; professional identity of teacher educators; literacy development; critically reflective practice; curriculum development; inclusive practice.
