I gained my BA degree in Religious education at Marmara University (in Istanbul/Turkey), and my MA in Religious Education (RE) at the University College London's Institute of Education. I’m now studying for my PhD in Education at Brunel University London.
I have 3.5 years of teaching experience as an RE teacher and one year as the head of the department in a primary school in Turkey. During my teaching experience, I realised that it is challenging to teach morals and values, especially within religious education. I decided to conduct a research project that is supervised by Dr David Aldridge and Dr Cathy Gower.
