Christine Paget

After completing an MSc Education in Research Design and Methodology in 2012 at Oxford, I moved into the DPhil Education programme in October 2013.  My research is focused on educational policy as intended by policy makers and as experienced by teachers and students.  Mixed Methods are used to address the research questions.

I hold two Bachelor degrees from the University of British Columbia, Canada (B.A. History & Geography and B.Ed), as well as a Master of Arts in Curriculum Studies and Educational Administration from the same university.  I have over a decade of teaching experience including two years in Rio de Janeiro and nine years in West Vancouver.

The working title for my doctoral research is Exploring School Resource and Teacher Qualification Policies, their Implementation and Effects on Schools and Students’ Educational Outcomes in Brazil. My supervisors are Professor Jo-Anne Baird and Professor Pam Sammons and my studies are partly funded by the Kellogg Progress Scholarship.
