Paul joined the School of Education 2006 to take up a three-year research post as a research fellow in VICTAR. He is working on a Sightsavers International funded project studying the educational inclusion of children with visual impairment in developing countries. This involves establishing an evidence base demonstrating the effectiveness of different educational models of education for children with blindness and low vision in developing countries.
Paul’s PhD research explored the potential role of inclusive learning environments in promoting effective learning for visually impaired adults through the exploration of e-learning and assistive technology.
Listen to Paul discuss early childhood development and the education of children with visual impairment in an article on the Health Education Advice Resource Team (HEART) website.
