My teaching

The University of London was the first UK higher education institution to award women full degrees, in 1878.

Currently I teach across Masters, PhD and EdD programmes at the UCL Institute of Education, particularly on the Masters in Education course. In addition to face to face teaching, I teach on various online modules, mainly in the area of curriculum, policy and practice, as well as research methods.

I supervise students working on dissertations in areas such as Big Data, artificial intelligence and education, children and the digital world, sociology of education, and medical, dental and legal education. I currently have two places vacant for potential doctoral students wanting to work with me in the areas of education and artificial intelligence, big data, children’s privacy rights or critical algorithm studies.
