Dr David McIlroy

Reader in the Psychology of Individual Differences in Education - Liverpool John Moores University

David is a Reader and Principal Lecturer in The Psychology of Individual Differences in Education at Liverpool John Moore’s University. He is a National and International Teaching Fellow and has authored two books and book chapters on study skills in 16 discipline areas for Sage Publications. He also authored many research articles in educational journals that include personality, self-efficacy, test anxiety, emotional intelligence, and psychological measurement. David has worked with student interns in developing learning resources to enable students to navigate their way through anxieties and self-regulation around affective, behavioural, and cognitive challenges. He also sits on the academic board at LJMU and is an academic governor so is well placed to approach student challenges with a bird’s eye and worm’s eye overview. He is also engaged with international collaborative research with the Netherlands, Turkey, and Spain (e.g. digital learning anxieties) and thus recognises the universality of contemporary, prevailing problems.
