Personal profile


Louise is a Lecturer in Education within the School of Education and Social Work. She teaches on both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, and leads on the Professional Graduate Diploma in Education for secondary English. She is the Convenor for the PGDE Secondary programme and the pathway lead for the PGCE Supported Induction Route.

Prior to joining the School of Education and Social Work at the University of Dundee, Louise spent several years at the University of Edinburgh, specialising in Educational Studies across undergraduate Initial Teacher Education programmes.  Before that, she was a teacher of English in a Scottish secondary school for more than 10 years.

Louise completed her doctorate, focusing on structural and cognitive aspects of narrative, in 2000.  She completed her Initial Teacher Education at the University of Edinburgh in 2005.


Louise contributes to a number of courses within the School of Education and Social Work, including:

  • PGDE Secondary
  • MA Education (UG)
  • Master of Education (PG)

 She also works with students undertaking their Doctoral research.


Louise’s most recent research project took place in a secondary school in central Scotland to explore the impact of a new, flexible learning space on teaching and learning. This project sought to investigate how teachers and learners use their new resources and space effectively to promote and/or develop learners’ 21st century skills. 

Louise also initiated and is leading an ongoing, cross-institute research project with three colleagues, exploring pre-service teachers’ attitudes to, and perceptions of, their responsibility for teaching Literacy, Numeracy, and Health and Wellbeing.

Louise’s non-empirical research has so far focussed on educational policy for teacher development and aspects of educational philosophy.
