Teaching

At present I teach on and co-ordinate the educational studies components for the three concurrent teacher education programmes offered by the School of Education and make contributions across three years of the School’s programme for primary teachers. I specialise in the generic aspects of education that form part of the professional formation of every teacher. For many years I led the Education Policy course within the School’s international Ed. D. programme and enjoy teaching policy related aspects of Education. Currently I teach a new masters level course that runs during the induction year for probationary teachers and am working on developing the masters curriculum for the early phase of teacher’s careers. Teaching in higher education has always been a privilege and pleasure.

Additional information

After a very traditional West of Scotland career in shipbuilding, I taught for seven years in secondary schools as a teacher of technical subjects and as a teacher with responsibility for pastoral care. I joined the School of Education (then called the Faculty of Education) in 2001 as a lecturer in the Department of Educational Studies. I am married with four daughters and have an irrational attachment to a team from the East End of Glasgow.
