Jacqueline Launders BEd (Hons), MSc, FHEA
Senior Lecturer Primary Education, teaching primarily mathematics education. I am an Academic Tutor and my work also involves visiting schools to supervise students on school placements for School Direct, PGCE and undergraduate programmes.
At Sheffield Hallam I teach both undergraduate and postgraduate trainees. The majority of my teaching focuses on primary mathematics working with those on their initial teacher training courses.
Prior to my work with Hallam, I was Numeracy Coordinator, a Deputy Head Teacher and spent time as an acting Head Teacher in a local Primary School. I taught in a number of schools, including schools in Newcastle upon Tyne and Nottinghamshire. I have taught across the whole Primary range.

My research at Master's level related to children’s attitudes to mathematics and how this impacts on their attainment.
I have focused on ways to support trainees develop their mathematics subject knowledge through peer assisted learning
At present I am interested in the mastery approach to teaching mathematics and how schools are developing this approach.
