My research explores the possibility of teaching learners the un- or preconscious ways of thinking typically used by expert writers. Underlying this is a concern with the effects of performativity and propositional knowledge on learner agency, creativity and wellbeing.
I currently work as a part-time Lecturer in Primary Education at London Met University. Prior to this, I worked in primary education in London for twenty-four years in a variety of roles, including teaching, senior leadership, consultancy and Local Authority positions. Since my involvement in QCA's ‘Creativity in the Curriculum' project in 2004, I have been extremely interested in creative processes. As a habitual writer, I am fascinated by the relationship between these two areas of study.
