On Friday I submitted two abstracts for consideration for presentation at the BERA (British Educational Research Association) conference in Sussex in September. One is based on a pilot case study i have just done on identity in early career teachers. The other is a Marxist Feminist critique, using an epistolary methodology, of the new managerialism in education, and my co-author, Dr Vicky Duckworth and I, are really proud of it. Fingers crossed that one or both of these gets accepted! April 5th is when we will find out.
I was a psychology and social sciences teacher for many years and now I am in the throes of a teaching and research career in HE. I care passionately about education. This blog will show you why and how.
