Dr Saeeda Shah is to lead research projects in Pakistan and the United Arab Emirates

Dr Saeeda Shah of the School of Education has been successful in getting funding for two international research projects.

The first will be based in Pakistan and will focus on how teacher trainees are taught, bridging the gap between theory and practice. The project is in collaboration with Fatima Jinnah Women University, Pakistan and engages with three different teacher training providers.

For Saeeda’s second project, she will collaborate with Professor Howard Stevenson (University of Nottingham) to look into the International Baccalureate Middle Years Programme (MYP) in the specific religious and cultural context of the United Arab Emirates.

Saeeda is already working on a three-year British Academy funded project researching gender and leadership for capacity building in collaboration with four universities in Pakistan. The two new projects will further extend national and international partnerships for advancement of knowledge and research.

Saeeda is an internationally recognised scholar in the field of Islam, education and educational leadership. Her forthcoming book (in press), Education, Leadership and Islam, provides new insights into debates in and about educational philosophy and leadership.
