Dr Ros McLellan taught psychology and mathematics in the secondary schools for a number of years before joining the Faculty of Education at Cambridge University. Her long-standing interest is student motivation. In recent years, she has also worked on a number of projects focusing not only on achievement motivation but also on student wellbeing, mathematics anxiety, and creativity. Ros works with schools to develop and refine strategies that make a real difference to teaching and learning in the classroom. She coordinates the long-standing SUPER network which is a partnership between the Faculty of Education and local schools that conducts research together that mutually benefits all partners. This work has led to collaboration with a network of schools in Kazakhstan where colleagues from the SUPER network helped to foster teachers' professional learning.
