Sheena Lee

Research Project Manager

Sheena Lee is a project manager working across four projects in the Department of Education.

1. KindOx: The University of Oxford’s Department of Education works in close collaboration with Ferrero to advise on best content for the Magic Kinder app and evaluate outcomes. The Kinder-Oxford Research Programme sets a forward looking agenda for children’s education, underpinned by research evidence that benefits children’s literacy and psychological development.

2. Enhancing Summative Assessment of Practical Science: A Systemic Approach: What new examination questions can be designed to measure pupils’ understanding of different aspects of practical science and how they work together for coherent understanding of science? The collaboration will address such questions about practical work by designing and testing new, robust and reliable examination questions that can be used nationally. The project will explore the views of a diverse range of teachers and pupils so that the new examination questions can be adapted for use across the country without biasing any particular cohort.

3. Research Excellence Framework: The REF is the system for assessing the quality of research in UK higher education institutions.

4. Athena Swan Athena SWAN was established to encourage and recognise commitment to advancing the careers of women in higher education and research. Athena SWAN now recognises work undertaken to address gender equality more broadly, and not just barriers to progression that affect women.
