Profile

Professor Beauchamp is Associate Dean (Research) for the School of Education and Professor of Education. After many years working as a primary school teacher, Professor Beauchamp moved into higher education as a lecturer at Swansea University. He became Programme Director for the primary PGCE course as well as lecturing in primary science, music and education and professional studies. He also taught on a range of MA modules and supervised research students. He moved to fulfil the same duties with Swansea School of Education before taking the post of Programme Director for the BA (Hons) Educational Studies degree at Cardiff Metropolitan University in 2007. He was appointed Director of Research in 2009.

Professor Beauchamp’s research focus is on ICT in education, particularly the use of interactive technologies in learning and teaching. He is currently supervising PhD students looking at ICT in Education and music education. Professor Beauchamp has also published work on ICT and interactive teaching, primary education, music education (the area in which he gained his Ph.D. in 1996) and primary school science education.

He has been involved in many funded research projects and recently completed a 28 month EU funded project (with partners in Belgium, Holland, France, Spain, Germany and Turkey) examining the use of interactive whiteboards in second language teaching (see iTIlT project).

In addition to the above, Professor Beauchamp is an Additional Inspector for Estyn (where he undertook a full-time secondment for six months) and has inspected a range of educational providers. He is also Chair of Governors and Vice Chair of Governers in two primary schools and has served as external examiner for several universities.
