Dr Lucy Kelly is an Associate Professor in Education at the University of Bristol, primarily working with PGCE English trainee teachers. She advocates that trainee teachers see themselves as their own biggest resource in the classroom, and that they prioritise their wellbeing from the outset. Her main research interest is reflective practice as a positive tool for educator wellbeing, and she is Project Lead for the 'Reimagining the Diary' project, which uses a multimodal Diary Toolkit and ongoing wellbeing CPD to support educators across the country. The team are now in the process of commercialising the Diary Toolkit (launching in the autumn), but they are also using it with students, working with schools nationally and internationally.
Lucy has written numerous articles on educator wellbeing and reflective practice and presented her work on podcasts, at conferences and on the radio.
Lucy's latest book, Reimagining the Diary: reflective practice as a positive tool for educator wellbeing is published by John Catt and is available now.
