Diana Murdoch

After many years teaching in mainstream schools, in UK and Europe, Diana moved into Support for Learning and Special Education. This led to doctoral research into the lived experience of inclusive education, within the context of a mainstream secondary school, with students, teachers and families. More recent and current research projects are a scoping review on the provision of education for those at greatest risk of educational exclusion worldwide; inclusive education and pedagogy, and teacher agency within Higher Education. Diana’s recent teaching on several Masters courses in inclusive education, at the University of Edinburgh, includes teacher agency, pedagogy, comparative approaches to inclusive and special education, and philosophy of education.
