Ms Paula Ambrossi
  • Lecturer
  • IOE - Learning & Leadership
  • UCL Institute of Education

I was born and raised in Santiago de Chile but I have lived most of my life in Britain.

Research Summary

My current research explores the ethics of use of photographs representing human distress. This includes educational and global aspects of use. In terms of representation, it asks the question of where our sense of selves end, and what the answer means for our moral duties towards others.

Within ITET (initial teacher education) I have two different areas of interest:  
Foreign language learning, with Intercultural Understanding at its centre. 
Teacher Presence and Applied Drama, understanding who we are and what this means for others.

Teaching Summary

I have been a tutor and lecturer in the Primary PGCE at the IOE since 2006.

My work in England started as a residential social worker in a house for young adults with learning difficulties and challenging behaviour.
I have a BSc in Psychology and Computing, and after obtaining a PGCE in Spanish/French, I taught MFL in a Secondary school. 
I got a MA in ICTs in Education in 2011.
I am currently undergoing a PhD at UCL.
