Dr Rhona Brown

  • Research Associate (School of Education)

Biography

I joined the School of Education at the University of Glasgow as a Research Associate in 2023, having completed my doctoral studies here in 2022, as part of Centre for Sustainable, Healthy and Learning Cities and Neighbourhoods

Previous to joining, I worked as a Senior Research Associate with the Transforming Education for Sustainable Futures Network

I have worked in education, as a teacher, teacher educator and researcher, initially in Europe and then in Tanzania and Sri Lanka.  Prior to starting my doctoral studies, I was the Head of Education Programmes for the British Council Nepal. 

Research interests

My main research interests are around the intersecting areas of pedagogies, learning, language and teacher education and much of my previous work has focused on educational contexts in the Global South. I am also interested in equitable, ethical research partnerships and worked as a Senior Research Associate with the Transforming Education for Sustainable Futures Network as well as a doctoral researcher and research assistant at the Centre for Sustainable, Healthy and Learning Cities and Neighbourhoods, both funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund.

I completed my PhD at the University of Glasgow in 2022, investigating primary children’s and educators’ perceptions and experiences of home, neighbourhood and school learning spaces in Tanzania. I continue to develop my interest in creative qualitative methods with adults and children and have worked on a range of projects in the UK and internationally.

I completed my Masters in International Education and Development at the University of Sussex in 2012 where my research and interests focused on  inclusion, pedagogy and teacher education.
