Key Research Interests

Dr. Penny Lamb's research interests lie in applied research in Education (mainly but not exclusively within Physical Education) and centres on pupil voice, exploring pedagogy in relation to minority groups, such as Gifted & Talented pupils, disengaged and disaffected pupils and pupils with Special Educational Needs. Through her role as a teacher-educator she has also developed an interest in teacher identity, especially how trainee teachers develop their abilities to reflect on their own and others' professional practice. Recent funded projects have included exploring pupil voice on being Gifted & Talented in Physical Education; enhancing reflective abilities in Physical Education trainee teachers; the introduction of cheerleading into school physical education, and its impact on pupil participation. Current projects include: Exploring Physical Education as a tool to foster a passion for Modern Foreign Languages; Teacher Identity, the ‘lived experience’ of being a teacher of Physical Education; Masculinities in young all-male cheerleading teams; The use of Lesson Study to engage trainee teachers in their learning.
