Dr Sally Bamber

Dr Sally Bamber

Inclusive mathematics education and transformative teacher education are two of the themes that inform Sally’s work. Following 15 years in secondary mathematics teaching, she moved into teacher education at the University of Chester in 2007. Sally has developed research informed ITE and MA programmes and teaches and supervises on the Doctor of Education programme at the university. Her current research interests are aligned with developments that aim to widen access to HE through collaborative, research-informed lesson design in secondary schools. She is currently part of an Erasmus+ funded project Research in Teacher Education that develops models of participative action research and practitioner enquiry for beginning teachers. This continues the aim of developing a more democratic approach to mathematics education, through collaborative, innovative lesson design, that considerers the emotional and cognitive aspects of learning. Empowering teachers, at all stages of experience, to use research to inform their professional judgement is a key part of her work.
