    About Donna Windard

    I joined the School of Sport, Coaching, and Exercise Science in November 2008 having worked and studied at Brunel University. I specialise in research which increases our understanding of the impact of recent UK sport and educational policies on the structure and organisation of PE, teachers’ ideologies and teachers’ pedagogies. I currently supervise both undergraduate and postgraduate students at Lincoln, and contribute to a number of research groups including HART and YSR.
