As part of her role, she supports trainee teachers on initial and in-service teacher training courses, as well as research students on the MA teaching and learning and PhD exploring creativity in education. Prior to working at the university, she worked as a secondary art and design teacher in English secondary schools. Her main interests include the exploration of creative teaching and learning and how we might foster these approaches within educational contexts. She explores creativity through a range of research projects and has written book chapters and reports on this topic. These experiences have allowed her to work with a range of practitioners and teachers who have helped her reflect on the importance of creativity and explore new approaches in the classroom. 

Professor Martin Fautley is director of research in the school of education and social work at Birmingham City University. He has a wealth of experience in music education, both in terms of pedagogy, and of music education research. After enjoying many years as a classroom music teacher, he then undertook full-time Doctoral research working across the education and music faculties at Cambridge University, investigating teaching, learning, and assessment of classroom music making, with a focus on composing as a classroom activity.

He is widely known for his work on researching assessment in the classroom, but also researches understandings of musical learning and progression (especially in the novice stages), composing, and creativity. He regularly undertakes research and evaluation projects in the field of music education.

Professor Fautley is the author of eight books, and has written and published over fifty journal articles, book chapters, and academic research papers on a range of aspects of teaching and learning, and regularly presents the fruits of his research at international conferences. He is co-editor of the British Journal of Music Education.
