Leading education academics to present cutting edge research
26 April 2018
Social justice in schools and teachers’ professional development will be explored during two inaugural lectures at Leeds Beckett University.
Professor Rachel Lofthouse and Professor Jonathan Glazzard, from the Carnegie School of Education, will present some of their key educational research during the event at the University’s Headingley campus on Wednesday, 2 May.
Professor Lofthouse, the university’s Winifred Mercier Professor of Education, has a specific research interest in professional learning, in particular how teachers learn through approaches.
In her lecture, she will explore the lived experiences of education practice and the opportunities and constraints on professional learning.
Professor Glazzard leads on research at the Carnegie Centre of Excellence for Mental Health in Schools, and is director of the Centre for LGBT+ Inclusion in Schools. He also teaches across a range of teacher education courses. Professor Glazzard’s lecture will draw on conceptual frameworks to understand the interpretations of inclusion in educational contexts.
Professor Damien Page, Dean of the Carnegie School of Education, said: “We’re incredibly proud of the cutting edge research within the School of Education and to have two outstanding Professorial inaugural lectures is a fantastic celebration of the work we do and the impact our research has in the sector.”
The lectures, Addressing Professional Challenges in Diverse and Complex Educational Landscapes, will take place between 5-7pm in the James Graham Building, Headingley Campus, Leeds, LS16 5LF on Wednesday 2 May. The event is part of Leeds Beckett’s Professorial Inaugural Series.
