Carol  Thompson Author of Evaluating Organization Development

Carol Thompson

Senior Lecturer Teacher Education
University of Bedfordshire

I am a Researcher and Teacher Educator with a keen interest in teacher and mentor development. For the past 20 years I have been training teachers and mentors and have had the opportunity to observe excellent practice in a very diverse range of settings which has most certainly informed my work. Bringing clarity and new ways of thinking to both teaching and mentoring roles is what drives my writing and I have a focus on creating work which is both useful and accessible.


My research interests have evolved over my career but always come back to the same common thread which is how personal and professional development allows us to have greater agency in professional roles.

    Work and writing take up so much of my time it was difficult to think of what to say here... I also enjoy walking my dog and growing things on my allotment!
