Dr Michael Inglis
I joined the University of Leeds in 2012. I was previously a teacher educator at Liverpool John Moores University and a physics teacher in secondary schools in London and Hertfordshire. I worked in Ethiopia for 2 years (2006 & 2007) with VSO (Voluntary Service Overseas), where I supported teacher educators and school teachers as part of a national CPD programme. Before becoming a teacher I worked in the oil industry as a geophysicist with Texaco, where I designed and managed the acquisition and processing of seismic data.
- BA Education Programme Leader
My research interests are in initial teacher education and language in science education. My doctoral research was on student teachers’ experiences and subject knowledge conceptualisations during a pre-service Physics Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) course. I was a Co-Investigator on The Linguistic Challenges of the Transition from Primary to Secondary School, a 3-year project funded by ESRC and led by Prof. Alice Deignan. I was also recently a Co-Investigator on the ASCENTS 121 Support for Science project (1-2-1 Academically Asymmetrical Paired Tutoring in Science), an intervention funded by EEF and Wellcome, and led by Prof. Ian Abrahams at the University of Roehampton.<h4>Research projects</h4> <p>Any research projects I'm currently working on will be listed below.

I have several years experience as a teacher educator on Science PGCE and BSc with QTS courses, and I recently led the Secondary PGCE programme here at the University of Leeds. I now lead the BA Education programme and I also teach on the PGCert in Education course for the Red Kite Alliance SCITT (School-Centred Initial Teacher Training). I currently supervise doctoral researchers and support a group of post-graduate researchers to produce the School of Education on-line journal, Hillary Place Papers.
