University Senior Lecturer in Primary Science and Teacher Education, Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge
Paul Warwick is engaged in a range of research and teaching activities in the Faculty that link directly with his interests in primary science education, the uses of technology in teaching and learning, and the professional development of trainee and beginning teachers. His research has focused on young pupils' developing understanding of the scientific approach to enquiry, the role of the technologies in the development of a dialogic classroom pedagogy and the development of teacher learning through lesson study.
Paul has an interest in classroom assessment practices and the development of teachers as reflective practitioners - in particular, the ways in which beginning teachers create and sustain a professional identity. Most recently, he has become interested in the developing area of computing for primary school students.
Paul is a member of Early Years and Primary Masters PGCE team, focusing on courses in Science, Computing and ICT, and Researching Practice. He is Chair of Examiners for Section 1 (assignments) for the EYP PG, runs the Men's Support Group and has responsibility for managing the use of the course learning platform on the course. He makes contributions to various Masters courses and supervises on the PhD and EdD.
As a member of the editorial board of Reflective Teaching, Paul is a member of the group responsible for updating and revising both the Reflective Teaching books (Bloomsbury) and the RTwebsite. He has acted as external examiner for Initial Teacher Education at three HEIs.
