Meta-cognitive-related learning patterns in students from different countries and cultures; how students adapt when they move to a different country and learning culture from their own
With degrees in psychology, sociology and social policy, and education, Dr Eaves is trained in both quantitative and qualitative methods and uses both in her research. She started her teaching career as a psychology lecturer in the North-East of England around 25 years ago.
She then moved to Thailand and worked for various universities, teaching on psychology, education and international education programmes for over a decade. This work introduced her to a wide range of learners from different cultures, and influenced the shift in her research from equal opportunities in education to cultural differences in education contexts and learning styles.
Now back in England, she teaches on campus at Bath Spa University, continuing with cross-cultural education research projects, in addition to being online faculty for University of Roehampton, London Online.
