Laura Barritt is a lecturer in education development at Cardiff University. Her role involves supporting the development and delivery of Education Fellowship programmes across the university. Her research interests and expertise involve pedagogic theory and development, sustainable learning and teaching practices, creative learning, arts practice, and transdisciplinary learning and teaching. She completed an MRes in 2018 with a focus on adolescent metacognitive behaviour via materialisation in arts practice, which led into a transdisciplinary PhD. Laura’s PhD work considers person-environment relations in a hyperconnected era and their impact on developing cognition in learners. Her PhD thesis considers how we might better situate pedagogy through engagement with arts practice to better correspond with learners’ developing needs as the environment evolves.
