Amy has two areas of research interest, firstly, the co-production and strengths-based working activities within the prison environment and secondly, the learning and teaching area of assessment and feedback.
Her work in prisons across the North-West of England involves using an asset-based community development (ABCD) approach to support the growth of capital for the prisoners (personal and social capital and rehabilitative readiness) and the enhance the cultural of the prison (community capital and rehabilitative culture). This work involves developing a model of working in a secure environment using the ABCD framework.
Amy also researches within the field of Learning and Teaching as she is keen to enhance the student experience with cutting edge approaches.
