About

 

Senior Lecturer @ Univeristy of South Wales, teaching on the BA(Hons) Early Years Education  & Practice. I am fascinated by the ways that children engage with the natural environment and believe that connecting with nature is critical for human health and wellbeing.
Outdoor Learning is a key area of my teaching and I love to share my passions and ideas for teaching children with the students ; My research interests are around the effects of teaching children outdoors on their behaviour, wellbeing and health and how we can address the many issues that steal [our] time from enjoying being outside thus understanding our responsibilities of caring for the planet.
Embracing the use of technology as part of my own pedagogy continues to be an area of development and exploration and modelling its integration into outdoor practices has been an important step forward.
