Career Summary

Biography

I began my career as a secondary History/English teacher, and spent 18 years working in schools as a classroom teacher. In 2007 I moved into education consultancy, working with schools and groups of teachers on professional learning and the NSW Quality Teaching model. In 2008 I joined the School of Education at the University of Newcastle, where I am based at the Callaghan Campus. I have a strong interest in innovative pedagogy and teacher professional learning, and I continue to work with schools in these areas.

Collaboration

I am currently working with Professor Jenny Gore and Dr Wendy Amosa on an ARC Linkage project, Effective Implementation of Pedagogical Reform (EIPR). This study is designed to investigate an intervention to support pedagogical reform through a process we call the Quality Teaching Rounds. The EIPR study is designed to circumvent difficulties that have long been associated with professional development and pedagogical interventions.
