Research

Louise’s most recent research project took place in a secondary school in central Scotland to explore the impact of a new, flexible learning space on teaching and learning. This project sought to investigate how teachers and learners use their new resources and space effectively to promote and/or develop learners’ 21st century skills. 

Louise also initiated and is leading an ongoing, cross-institute research project with three colleagues, exploring pre-service teachers’ attitudes to, and perceptions of, their responsibility for teaching Literacy, Numeracy, and Health and Wellbeing.

Louise’s non-empirical research has so far focussed on educational policy for teacher development and aspects of educational philosophy.
