Dr John Yandell profile picture
  • Associate Professor
  • IOE - Culture, Communication & Media
  • UCL Institute of Education

I have worked at the Institute of Education since 2003 and have been subject leader for the English and English with Drama PGCE since 2004. I also work on the  English Education MA programme, where I am the module leader for the core module, Contemporary Issues in English Education. I am currently the main or secondary supervisor for sixteen doctoral students. Since 2013, I have been the editor of the peer-reviewed academic journal, Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education.

Before moving to the Institute of Education, I worked for twenty years in three inner London secondary schools. I spent eleven years as head of English at Kingsland School, Hackney, and three as head of the Ethnic Minority Achievement Team at Haverstock School, Camden. 

Research Summary
My doctoral research was on the teaching of literature in urban English classrooms. More recently, I led a three-year evaluation of the Globe Theatre's Playing Shakespeare project. Working in collaboration with colleagues in Australia,  I have been involved in a research project exploring the literary knowledge and formation of early-career teachers of English.
Teaching Summary
I teach on the English and English with Drama Secondary PGCE programme, the MA English Education programme, and I supervise doctoral students.
