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.

Research Expertise

My key areas of research to date have related to teacher professional learning and pedagogical reform. I also have a strong interest in pedagogy and emerging learning technologies.

Teaching Expertise
As an in-service teacher educator, I have a history of teaching in the area of pedagogy across primary and secondary schools contexts. Since beginning at the University of Newcastle in January 2008, I have been responsible for teaching the following courses: EDUC2101 (Introduction to Specialist Studies -Callaghan Campus) EDUC2050 (Specialist Studies in English - Callaghan Campus) EDUC6200 (Productive Classroom Practice - Callaghan Campus and Weblearn) EDUC1751 (Knowledge and Information Technologies -Callaghan Campus)

Collaborations
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.

The potential of rounds for impacting on teacher development is significant. However, rounds are conceptualised in multiple ways and there is little evidence of how they work, particularly for beginning teachers. This article examines how our approach, "Quality Teaching Rounds", shapes the transition from preservice to inservice teaching. We analyse the discursive, subjectification, and lived effects of this form of rounds, drawing on interviews with 39 teachers in studies conducted between 2009 and 2014. Our analysis shows positive effects for these beginning teachers, including greater confidence, stronger professional relationships, and a clearer vision of their goals. We argue that the pedagogical framework and specific processes of our approach are critical to ensuring its positive effects and potentially interrupting attrition.
