Research interests

Lorraine’s particular research interests are in relation to cognitive and developmental psychology and in the use of mixed methods research. In the past, this has focused upon children’s developing understanding of mind, but her cognitive interests have been extended into more practice-related issues around learning, such as reading comprehension, pedagogical approaches to teaching literacy and numeracy, meta-cognition in context, student motivation, teacher skill development and teacher-learner-environment interactions including those supporting student behaviour and engagement.

In her current role, Lorraine’s research interests are realised through supporting post-graduate research and within a professional evidence-based practice.
