Dr Joan Mowat

Senior Lecturer

Education

Personal statement

I am a Senior Lecturer in the School of Education. I joined the University in 2005 after twenty-eight years in the classroom, the last seven of which as Depute Head Teacher at Vale of Leven Academy in West Dunbartonshire. I hold the Scottish Qualification for Headship [SQH] and have successfully worked with four cohorts of SQH students. I am Course Leader for the Masters in Education.

My PhD, ‘Teaching for Understanding within the Affective Field’, undertaken at the University of Glasgow, focuses upon the evaluation of a social constructivist approach to support children with Social, Emotional and Behavioural Needs. This work was developed further through the award of a grant from the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation to develop the approach in two Scottish Local Authorities – Falkirk and Aberdeenshire. I am currently engaged in consultancy work with Aberdeenshire council to develop the approach across networks of Primary and Secondary schools. I am an executive member of the Scottish Educational Research Association. I am currently engaged in writing Research Briefs for the recently formed Scottish College for Educational Leadership.
