ABOUT ME

Desmond Tan is a lecturer in the department of social sciences studies at Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah Graduate School of Education with a specialisation in secondary geography education. He is interested in assessment for learning (AfL), assessment in education, teacher learning, initial teacher education and training and cultural historical theory.

He is currently in his final year of DPhil studies in the University of Oxford where his work focuses on student teachers learning during their initial teacher training and education under the subject area of secondary geography. More specifically his work examines on how student teachers as learners learn to implement Assessment for Learning (AfL) during their teaching in schools. He is using cultural historical theory as a theoretical lens to explain the complexity of student teachers learning in schools. At the University of Oxford, he was an active participant at The Oxford Centre for Sociocultural and Activity Theory Research (OSAT).
