Dr. Eve Tandoi

Lecturer in Education

Early Years and Education Studies

My interests in children’s literature and pedagogy were generated through my Doctoral research. This together with my background in philosophy and interest in education policy fuel my current research.


As a Lecturer in the School of Education and Humanities, I am interested in exploring the connections between education policy, philosophy and practice, particularly within areas related to literacy and critical thinking.
