Research Expertise

Research Interests

Sally Hansen is currently the Director of the Institute of Education and Director of Teacher Education. Sally took up a senior position in the former College of Education in 1999. Prior to that she worked in the secondary school sector, as Head of English, and in other senior leadership roles. Her MPhil thesis (2000) titled Gender Differences and Writing: Self-Efficacy Beliefs, Attitudes, Preferences and Perceptions focused on the area of gender and literacy. Sally's research interest in self-efficacy led her to focus her PhD thesis on teacher efficacy. Her 2005 doctoral dissertation titled: An Investigation of English Teacher Efficacy Beliefs: Subject-Specificity, Subject-Congruency, and Associated Factors, examined the efficacy beliefs of secondary teachers of English within the context of a new and expanding curriculum and increasing educational technologies. More recently Sally Hansen has expanded her research interest to include wider issues related to teacher education, both policy and practice. Sally is involved in a number of research studies related to teacher education, teacher quality, and teacher learning.
