I have been involved in education for nearly 30 years, initially in secondary schools as a history teacher and head of history, before moving into university teacher education. I have worked extensively for the Historical Association charity to promote history education, and have advised different government bodies, local authority organisations and examination boards on aspects of history education. Since moving into teacher education my research has focused on: teacher development; the nature of the history curriculum (specifically how students relate to the study of history and teachers’ understanding of history and how this affects the decisions they make); and the challenges of teaching ‘difficult’ and diverse histories. I have been involved with the Pestalozzi Programme for education professionals of the Council of Europe  and have worked on approaches to teaching history in a divided society.

Learn to Change is launching an exploration: Announcement for the Collective

Learn to Change’s members held a General Assembly in fall 2022, in which the decision was taken to transform the association into a less formal, and more agile entity. Therefore, we will change status, going from an ‘organization’ to a less formal entity that we name “The collective”
