I am the current Leader of Postgraduate Programmes in the School of Education of the Auckland University of Technology. My research interests are teachers' work, school policy, ethics, philosophy in schools, critical pedagogy, and the New Zealand Curriculum. My current research work focuses on Innovative Learning Environments (ILE) and digital pedagogies. Related areas of interest include the question of teachers' critical reflective practice and the evolving role and nature of the concept of 'knowledge' in the 21st century curriculum. My sole-authored books are From Technicians to Teachers: Ethical Teaching in the Context of Globalized Education Reform (Continuum, 2012) and Being a Teacher in the 21st Century: A Critical New Zealand Study (Springer, 2017). My co-edited works are Transforming Education: Design & Governance in Global Contexts (Springer, 2018), and Writing for Publication: Liminal Reflections for Academics (Springer, 2021).
