Dr Sarah Davies teaches both MA Education and PGCE Secondary D&T courses at Nottingham Trent University (NTU). She has a long history in textiles including a knitwear design degree, time working as an Advanced Skills Textile Teacher, and her current academic role.
Since joining NTU, Sarah has completed several research and curriculum development projects. Her doctoral thesis explored the different ways teachers coped with the shift to a single GCSE from subject-specific exams, like textiles. Since completing her doctorate, Sarah and Dr Alison Hardy established Building research capacity and engagement in Design and Technology Education (BRACE) – NTU Innovative Knowledge Exchange project and website – https://www.researchingdandt.co.uk/.
She is passionate about all things D&T and believes that textiles and fashion have a key role to play in young people’s appreciation of the material work and their ability to critique, change and shape that world through design and make activity. Sarah aims to share her work and show the group how to get actively involved in research and access relevant and high-quality D&T research that they can use within their department, subject, or school.
The Textiles Skills Centre Associates are a team of volunteers that manage the social media platforms and website, and offer support, mentorship and advice to textile teachers and trainees. We organise free resource networking events each month (Tea ‘N Chat) and are always on hand to help and encourage when needed.
We are always looking for new Associate members, so if you would like to join this small team then do contact us at: email@example.com
