Staff - Management and Institutional Development
Mr David Hall - Personal details
My research and publications focus upon education policy with a particular emphasis upon professional identities, educational disadvantage and leadership. This research has been funded by agencies including the Economic and Social Research Council, the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, the Department for Children Schools and Families, the Training and Development Agency for Schools and the Department for International Development. I have recently completed an ESRC funded project 'Distributed Leadership and the Social Practices of School Organisation' for which I was Principal Investigator and am currently engaged in a number of writing activities linked to this work.
I have developed a series of MA programmes targeted at both UK and international education professionals. I currently teach on the MA Education and MA Educational Leadership and School Improvement programmes and am Programme Director of the MA Education (International). I also supervise a number of EdD and PhD students.
Prior to joining the university sector I spent twelve years as a teacher of Economics, Politics and Business Studies in a variety of schools, VI Form Colleges and FE colleges both in the UK and overseas. Most of this time was devoted to teaching, but I also assumed a range of additional roles and responsibilities including running a large Department, serving as an Assistant Principal, writing textbooks and participating in a number of curriculum development projects.
