Project Summary

Taking a social constructivist approach, my research will seek to challenge essentialist concepts of teacher cultural identity in the UAE through the phenomenon of the male Emirati teacher deficit.  In what ways does the deficit seem to matter to Emiratis?  Is cultural compatibility between Emirati boys and their teachers important – and why?  For Emiratis, what determines cultural compatibility?

Supervisory Team

Professsor David Hall and Dr. Chris Boyle

Wider Research Interests

I am interested in how culture differences impact educational development, governance and leadership and the professional development of educators.
