The event will be led by Durham University Associate Professor, Dr. David Waugh.

Director of Primary Education and Course Leader for Primary English, David has also published several books for Scholastic; designed to support teachers and trainees in planning for teaching, as well as extensive written work on Primary English and management for educational change; co-written e-learning resources, developed a learning app, and contributed to articles published on BBC News and the Guardian.

David also enjoys writing stories for children. He is a published children’s author of three novels: Lottie’s Run; “Girls Can’t Play Football!”; and Jessica’s Other World, all of which are used in schools. He regularly works in schools in England and abroad, using novels as a focus for language work with children. This led to him being asked by 15 East Durham schools to write a novel with 45 children. The Wishroom was published in June 2017.
