I am conducting postdoctoral research in STEM education in schools. My research experience to date is in pedagogy, technology enhanced learning in schools, teacher professional learning and curriculum studies in STEM education, English and the Social Sciences. I also teach and supervise postgraduate students in teacher education.
Prior to joining UTS in February 2016, I was a full-time academic at Western Sydney University and prior to that at the University of Sydney.
My previous work experience includes classroom teacher for many years, head teacher and senior education officer.
I want all K-12 students to have engaging, imaginative and substantial learning experiences in schools. My awards for outstanding contributions to student learning in universities, include an Australian Office of Learning and Teaching award in 2013 and a Technology Enriched Instruction award from the Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education (SITE) in 2014 from the USA.
My award winning doctoral study of exemplary teachers' knowledge of technology integration in NSW primary and secondary public schools developed a new framework for technology enhanced learning known as "High Possibility Classrooms". This work, published in a Routledge monograph in March 2015, is titled: "Technology Integration and High Possibility Classrooms: Building from TPACK". In 2015 I was a visiting scholar teaching in a doctoral program in digital technologies at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, USA. In 2017 I received the Australian Teacher Education Association (ATEA) Early Career Researcher Award.
