Martin teaches on the Doctor of Educational and Child Psychology course, joining the team in 2008. He has also coordinated and taught on a diploma (special educational needs) course with Sheffield Hallam University and, having helped to develop it, led the Dyslexia Certificate in conjunction with Sheffield University.
Martin has had an interest in Q Methodology since 2005. He has presented at conferences (most recently at the 33rd annual conference of the International Society for the Scientific Study of Subjectivity) and published a number of Q-related journal articles and book chapters. Martin has applied Q to different areas, notably to young researchers (the subject of his Doctoral work), school transition from (Y6 to Y7) and student viewpoints of teaching and learning. Martin secured a small grant (Curriculum Development Fund) to facilitate further enquiry of this last topic. Martin is also interested in multi-disciplinary and multi-agency issues, exploring viewpoints related to teaching activities including ‘Getting the message’, similarities and differences between Clinical and Educational Psychologists and the use of Forum Theatre.
