Jude Hannam is an educator with over twenty years experience teaching in primary, TEFL and informal education settings. After working in Germany, Italy and the UK, she felt it was high time she formalised and expanded her knowledge of education systems around the world. She has just completed a Masters in Education (Globalisation and International Development) at the Faculty of Education in Cambridge, where her research focused on assessing how marginalised communities access education. Moving forward she hopes to keep her feet firmly in both camps by working in UK schools and international development projects especially in the areas of gender equity, informal and adult education.
In addition to her role as a founding staff member of DEFI, Jude is research assistant for Inquiring Science, a DEFI project at Hughes Hall, Cambridge which teaches the philosophy of science to primary children to improve their engagement with online sources of information.
