Description:

My PhD has evolved from my MA dissertation investigating online cross-age peer tuition between primary and secondary pupils, focusing on the methodology of developing small scale randomised controlled trials in schools and aggregating the results through a prospective cumulative meta-analysis. The PhD has involved two primary studies using randomised controlled trials for online cross-age peer tuition and online school group teaching. The primary research has involved efficacy trials in 19 schools and I am in the process of starting a data simulation in my third year to model a prospective cumulative meta-analysis using secondary data. In addition to the PhD, I have developed the online peer tuition and successfully won the BluePrint enterprise challenge at Durham University in 2017 for the concept of Peerz Academy.
