Kay Sidebottom is a lecturer in Education and Childhood at the Carnegie School of Education at Leeds Beckett University. Her specialism is teacher education (lifelong learning) and her background is in community and further education, where she has taught a range of subjects.
In addition to teaching on Childhood Studies, Kay is involved in the delivery of the new Post Graduate Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring.
Kay’s current area of focus in research is the application of critical posthuman theory in teaching and learning. She is currently researching the ways in which educators can work with posthuman thinking in order to reimagine education for the 21st century and beyond.
Other recent research projects include the use of restorative practice and Thinking Environments in education leadership; using interdisciplinary approaches (such as art and poetry) in teacher education, and employing philosophical enquiry as a pedagogical method for pro-social education.
