- Pre-service teachers' perceptions of social justice employing an adaptive expertise framework
- The extent to which multidimensional elements of induction and mentoring are perceived to be practiced in schools.
- Educational planning and the voices of adolescent priority learners in their self-management of learning, achievement and generation of plans for their futures.
Current Research Projects:
Dr Sue Sutherland's current research examines the development of professional identities of pre-service teachers from two Masters of Teaching programmes which have particular emphasis on learning to work with priority learners.
The study investigates considerable variations in the development of the socially just teacher drawing on an adaptive expertise framework for conceptualising effective teaching. Notions of situating professional knowledge, practice and sense of self as a teacher within wider professional, social, political, economic and cultural contexts are examined.
