Sarah Frodsham is a Department Lecturer in the Graduate School at the Department for Continuing Education. Her role is two-fold. Firstly, she collaborates with the Graduate Team to develop, run and teach on a weekly programme of training for a variety of interdisciplinary DPhil students. This is with the intended aim to facilitate them to become independent researchers. In addition to this she also helps to run a number of short accredited courses throughout the year. Including ‘Mixing it Up’ and ‘Digital Ethnography’. Having developed a new short accredited course, entitled ‘The Secret Life of Research Interviewing’, she intends to be teaching on it by next academic year (2022-23).
Sarah also holds a senior lectureship at Oxford Brookes University, at the School of Education and is currently supervising both MA and Doctoral students. In 2018 she was invited to co-convene the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) research group at Oxford Brookes University.
Her undergraduate degree is in molecular and human biology, obtained from Oxford Brookes University, and her MSc is in Structural Biology from Birkbeck, University of London. Following on from this her PhD examined the nature of creativity in primary school science teaching. Since completing the doctorate her research has focused on examining what creativity looks like at different moments and in different places in education (from primary school through to being an eminent scientist working in an academic institution).
