Johnny is currently working on a project titled 'Promoting children's positive attitudes towards pro-environmental behaviours: encouraging understanding, agency and motivation through gamebooks'. This work explores climate change education for primary-level children. Specifically, it investigates how gamebooks and dialogic lessons can be designed to develop children's understanding that their actions can have a positive impact in the fight against climate change.
His previous work focused on young children's preconceptions in science education (specifically teleology) and how group discussion about the nature of scientific explanations can challenge such preconceptions.
Johnny has also worked on a number of projects related to assessment in higher education, including programme-level assessment design in engineering and evaluating the impact of peer assessment on students' self-efficacy.
