Jill Steel (PhD student)
Thesis title: Children's Emotional Wellbeing and Reading: Exploring the influence of Reading to Dogs
I am a PhD student within Moray House School of Education and Sport. My primary interests are in emotional wellbeing and confidence, animal-assisted learning, literacy and learning environment.
My career includes experience both as a Primary School Teacher and a College Lecturer in Childhood Practice. In addition I volunteered for many years with my dogs as a Therapet visitor in conjunction with the Canine Concern Scotland Trust, and have conducted research into animal-assisted learning in a P1 classroom during my Masters in Educational Studies at the University of Glasgow in 2013/14.
