Research interests

Stephen is currently undertaking research investigating the use of film for professional learning. This will study practitioners' use of film-making through association with Aristotlean concepts of ethos, pathos and logos. Related research questions posed include:

  • To what extent, if any, can practitioners' use of film-making enhance professional learning and related service provision?
  • How can professional identity (including moral purpose) be enhanced, if at all, through practitioners' use of film-making?

Another current project (in collaboration with Ms. Jacqueline Horsburgh) involves consideration of the role and identity of support staff in schools and childhood practice. Comparisons will be made with 'paras' in other professions, for example paramedics or paralegals. Investigations will focus on the sustainability of extant structures and suggestions for evolving the role of such staff in schools and childhood practice.

Teaching

Stephen is an expert in the use of technology enhanced teaching and learning. He achieved a world first by designing and implementing a Masters’ level course on the use of interactive ICT devices for teachers. He created an innovative eLearning and Communications Development course that progresses the professionalisation of childhood practice leaders through an eportfolio system enhancing self-regulated communities of enquiry. Stephen is involved in using MIE (moving image education) to develop the social and thinking skills of school pupils and university students; one recent project commissioned by the Scottish Government being FAST (Film and Science Teaching), designed to re-invigorate science teaching in the primary school whilst a work in progress is a website to share university students’ uses of ICT via online video thereby developing social entrepreneurship.
