  • Overview:
    • Having taught science in London comprehensive schools for 12 years I moved into higher education at the Open University writing a chemistry course and the distance learning science PGCE. My research interests are science literacy and its relations to democracy, teaching and learning of socio-scientific issues and risk, learning chemistry, support of pre-service teachers, enhancing the relationship in schools between science and the arts. I am project leader of an international consultancy team supporting capacity-building of science teacher education in the Palestinian West Bank and Gaza. I also have strong international links with teachers and researchers in Brazil, Netherlands, France, Portugal, Korea, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
