Professor Nicki Hedge

  • Professor (People, Place & Social Change)

Research interests

My research interests and activity centre on the role of affect and emotions in learning and teaching, social justice with particular respect to internationalization and inclusion, gender and identity, the Capabilities Approach, and philosophy as research. My current projects are focussed on peer review, academic friendship, and emotional wellbeing and compassion in learning and teaching. I am supervising doctoral students working on emotions in education, e-learning and distance education, educational change and innovation, gender, identity, critical literacy, and applied linguistics.

Teaching

My teaching is focussed, mainly, on educational theory and philosophy, and research methods. This includes leading Advanced Research Methods courses for the School's PhD and EdD programmes, support (as materials writer) for an online Masters course in Modern Educational Thinking, and an EdD course in Educational Futures.  I also enjoy providing occasional lectures and seminars for the PGDE and MEduc programmes in, for example, Communication, Gender and Education, Emotional Wellbeing, Research Ethics and Global Citizenship. I am currently supervising doctoral students (EdDs and PhDs) working on emotions in education, e-learning and distance education, educational change and innovation, gender, identity, and applied linguistics. Until August 2018 I was the School's Director of Postgraduate Research and the Co-Director of our EdD Programme. Prior to that I was the leader of the Social Justice, Place and Lifelong Learning Research and Teaching Group and PGT Director in the School of Education. I am also the School's representative for the ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) education pathway.
