Sally Howard

Oxford Brookes PhD student
My research is exploring how teachers in England conceptualize and enact science inquiry. I am focussing on the transition year groups between primary to secondary to explore the opportunities for enhancing teacher practice and pupils learning. Previously I was a research associate involved in the SAILS EU project which developed secondary science teachers' confidence in inquiry and assessment. I am a Cognitive Acceleration in Science Education (CASE) provider of teacher CPD in Primary. I am an experienced primary and early years teacher as well as having been a senior lecturer primary initial teacher education where I led the science module. I have written a chapter in the current ASE Primary handbook and the previous one focussing on how teachers teach and pupils learn.
