Su Lyn Corcoran, Dr

Research associate at Manchester Metropolitan University

Dr Su Lyn Corcoran is a Research Associate at the Education and Social Research Institute, Manchester Metropolitan University and Programme Officer at the Enabling Education Network. Drawing on over a decade’s experience of teaching STEM subjects and theory of knowledge in the UK and the international sector, and just as long working for international non-governmental organisations delivering programmes in lower income countries, Su takes a cross-sectoral and interdisciplinary approach to research. Her research focuses on ‘blue sky inclusion’ (inclusive education in the broadest sense), working with artists, teachers and social work practitioners to explore: qualitative data generation, arts-based methods and monitoring and evaluation; street-connectedness; equity in education and social justice; displacement; competency-based curricula; STEAM; and teacher education in the UK and East Africa.
