The aim is to gather a much larger amount of data and to compare the findings to the MA study.

Alongside his PhD, Sammy is also a Research Assistant at the University working on the SHOUT4HE project. Sammy's role within the project consists of various key responsibilities: review of the literature; newsletter production; project organisation; communication with research partners and social media. The research focuses on the use of technology in higher education and how to create innovation and better practice within the HE community. The main outcome of the study is to have developed an E-Platform where HE lecturers and teachers can access advice and best practice examples on how to successfully incorporate technology into their pedagogy. The study is an Erasmus+ funded research project involving 5 different universities from 4 EU countries.


Sammy has been at Cardiff Metropolitan University in various forms of study and work. Previously, he has completed an undergraduate degree in BA (Hons) Educational Studies and Drama achieving a First-Class grade. After having completed his undergraduate studies, he completed a Master's Degree in Education and was awarded a Merit grade at the end of the course. This has led to the decision to enrol onto the PhD and to further his academic achievements and qualifications to date. The role of Research Assistant (SHOUT4HE) is providing useful insights into the working environment of research and where he feels he could take his career in the future.

Research Interests:
• Additional Learning Needs
• Specific Learning difficulties (SpLD)- Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Dyspraxia
• Cognition and memory
• Mindfulness and wellbeing
• Loneliness and isolation

Hannah is currently studying full time on a Knowledge Economy Skills Scholarship 2 (KESS). This Welsh government scheme is funded via the European social fund. KESS encourages collaborative research projects by connecting companies/organisations with higher education academics. Hannah’s project is in collaboration with Tomorrow's Generation school, a specialist dyslexic centre based in Cardiff. Her research is looking at the effectiveness of the current strategies used to support pupils with dyslexia. She hopes to develop a theoretical framework as part of her thesis which hopefully will enable the development of a toolkit. The focus of this toolkit would be to inform teachers, trainee teachers and other practitioners on how dyslexia can be best supported.


Profile (personal bio):

Hannah graduated from Cardiff Metropolitan School of Education in July 2019 with a first-class honours in Education, Psychology and Special Educational Needs. As part of her undergraduate degree, at level 6 she was required to undertake a module about specific learning difficulties. Her engagement and work for this module lead to the proposition of her involvement on this project. In October 2019, she resumed study at Cardiff Metropolitan University on an MPhil to PhD transfer.

Previously, Hannah has worked within non-profit organisations such as the British Red Cross (BRC). Here she worked as a community connector, as part of a local level scheme, to reduce loneliness and isolation by integrating individuals back into the community. Also, she volunteered to be part of the BRC ‘Safe Mates’ team. This program aims to ensure the wellbeing of festival goers by establishing hubs across UK festivals, that provide a safe space to talk away from the overwhelming atmosphere of a festival.

As Head of the Dental Technology teaching team, I introduced an innovative delivery method that utilised videoconferencing to deliver programmes to geographically remote learners. This development also introduced the use of e-portfolios that involved work-based mentors, helping to bridge the gap between employers and academics. I worked within the University's Learning and Teaching Development Unit for 2 years on a secondment (0.4fte) where I advised staff on the pedagogy and use of technology to enhance student learning. I have developed close ties with the Wales Dental Deanery and have worked with them to deliver, in a unique way, continual professional development across Wales to dental care professionals.


Delivered several workshops to school regarding the process and practicalities of creating online learning material for CPD courses.

Organised Enterprise symposium for School on developing online learning material.

Investigating the use of alternative, more creative assessment methods to encourage engagement in reflection.

Thomas Morris

School: Cardiff School of Education
Telephone Number: 02920 201596
Room Number: E0.05 (Research House, Cyncoed)
Research Groups: Pedagogy and Andragogy Research Group (PARG)

Research Interests:

  • Alternative Education
  • Behavioural Psychology and 'Challenging Behaviour' within Education
  • Cognitive Psychology
  • Educational Psychology
  • Research Methods


Tom is currently completing a full time PhD which is a Knowledge Economy Skills Scholarship 2 (KESS) funded project partnered with AL Direct. AL Direct is a part of PE Direct and provides alternative learning to students with Behavioural Emotional and Social Difficulties (BESD). During the project, Tom will be looking at the experiences of these students using ethnography. The aim of the project is to better understand how to provide improved outcomes to BESD learners within alternative education. This research will also aim to inform guidelines in educational practice for learners with BESD.

Supervisors: Gary Beauchamp; Kieran Hodgkin


In July 2017, Tom graduated from Cardiff Metropolitan University with a First-Class degree in BSc (Hons) Psychology. Following this, encouragement from peers, family and lecturers led Tom to start his MRes degree later that year. In January 2019, Tom was awarded a Merit for his MRes- Psychology. Later in 2019, Tom returned to Cardiff Metropolitan University to begin his PhD journey within the School of Education and Social Policy.

With an interest in Educational Psychology specifically, Tom spent time working in varied education-based roles including within Primary Schools, Secondary Schools and a Summer School throughout his education. Through each of these roles he found enjoyment in working with those described as 'challenging'. This interest in challenging behaviour and encouragement from friends and family, led Tom to his current role as a PhD student on a KESS project. This project was seen as the best opportunity to build upon his academic development and make a difference.

Barbara is currently studying part-time for a Creative Writing PhD, researching hysteria and Multiple Sclerosis, in the Victorian era and the present day, in a novel form, 'Ottilie & Grace'.

Her focus is upon hysteria and the links to the man who first identified MS as a distinct illness, Jean-Martin Charcot, who was also viewed as the 'Napoleon of Neuroses'. She is interested in this unusual link, which unfortunately still exists today: a female in contemporary times is more likely to be referred to a psychiatrist, rather than a neurologist, when presenting with clear neurological symptoms.

Profile (personal bio):

Barbara has lived and worked all over the world, from Austria, Scandinavia and New York to Hawaii and travelled to just about everywhere in between. She's been an au-pair, tri-lingual translator and homeopath. She currently works as a building Project Manager.

Since landing back to earth with a bump after a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2012, she is an active campaigner for disabled rights. Not only that, she felt able to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a writer. Having started her blog the year she was diagnosed, it has led to ever greater writing opportunities.

She also speaks at large medical conferences, about the reality of living with MS, most recently in Copenhagen, Athens and Hungary. As a Steering Group Member of Sanofi Genzyme's World Vs. MS project, she makes regular visits to Amsterdam to take part in content creation.

Her interest extends to films (as a script advisor and actor) and she has also spoken on television and radio about disability rights.

Ann R Tonge

Room Number: E0.05 (Research House)

Research Groups:
Arts and Humanities Research Group (AHRG)


National Association of Writers in Education

Research Interests:

  • Contemporary Australian literature.
  • Memory and identity in fiction and life-writing.
  • Postcolonial and settler theory.
  • Writing process and creative writing theory.



Ann is currently a full-time Creative Writing PhD candidate. Her practice-based thesis is in two parts –  a fictional life-writing novel and a critical study which examines postcolonial theory through a hybrid lens and considers the intersection of literary theory and poetics, through self-reflection and with reference to other contemporary Australian writers.


Ann was born in Manchester and spent her formative years moving around Australia. She has lived in Wales for many years but still feels the need to regularly stand on Queensland soil and see the Southern Cross. She has a BSc (Hons) and a PGCE (PcE) and has had a wide and varied career to date. As well as working in adult education, the health care sector and the civil service, she has designed and developed work-based skills courses and has taught in community education settings and secondary schools. She has also facilitated creative writing workshops and courses in the private sector. 

Further Information:

Ann is on the judging panel for the Aber Valley Arts Festival and has facilitated creative writing workshops for the WI and other community groups across South Wales. Previously, she has been involved in the BBC/OU ‘My Story’ roadshow, has taken part in literature and cross-arts projects run by Literature Wales, and recently had enormous fun collaborating with a group of children and other writers on a story for bilingual publication. 

When not reading, scribbling or working on her own novel or thesis, she is often to be found editing and proofreading for others (which is sometimes a mere ruse in order to be the first reader of an interesting work-in-progress).
