Research Fellow in Education, Edge Hill University

Dr Laura McGuire works as a Research Fellow in the Faculty of Education. Laura’s main research interest is exploring the role of education in shaping our values, our attitudes and our behaviour in a number of domains, but particularly in the area of climate change. She is interested in the effectiveness of different kinds of approaches to education and in the design of new educational initiatives on attitude change (both implicit and explicit) and on behaviour change – both the immediate effects and the effects that these initiatives have in the longer term on shaping individuals’ attitudes and behaviour.
