Kylie is currently an early career researcher, and is working on developing her work in the area of innovative teaching and learning, research preparedness and transition in doctoral education. She has developed a method of tracking the journeys of students involved in cross-disciplinary research and a construct of research preparedness. Though full time at the university, Kylie still continues to work as a teacher in schools to keep her professional practice current. She completed her PhD part-time whilst working full time as a teacher, and administrative leader, in the independent school sector.

Research expertise

Dr Kylie Shaw is currently a Chief Investigator on a global project investigating Innovative Teaching and Learning in schools. The project is sponsored by Microsoft and The Department of Education and Communities (DEC). She has worked with the Stanford Research Institute (SRI) in San Francisco, developing the dimensions to measure innovative learning activities and student work in schools. She has also developed and presented workshops to teachers in Australian schools on developing innovative teaching and learning experiences for 21st century learning. She was an invited participant in the Global Forum on Innovative Teaching and Learning in Washington in November 2011.

Dr Kylie Shaw's doctoral studies explored student experience in fourth year undergraduate research programs across a range of disciplines and how prepared students were to continue to further research study. She developed a construct called 'Research Preparedness', which has been published in a leading international journal, and is currently working on a grant to further explore this construct with beginning researchers in undergraduate and in research Masters programs. She has an interest in mixed methodologies, and developed a novel approach to measuring and comparing student research journeys, called the research plot.

Dr Kylie Shaw has presented papers at the Quality in Postgraduate Research (QPR), Australian Association for Research in Education (AARE) and Higher Education Research and Development (HERD) conferences in Australia and has presented her work internationally at the European Association for Research on Learning and Instruction (EARLI) and the American Educational Research Association (AERA) conferences. In 2008, Kylie was awarded the Faculty of Education and Arts Research Publications Prize for the most outstanding publication. In 2010, she was awarded the NSWIeR Beth Southwell Prize for Most Outstanding Thesis.

She is currently the Convenor of the Doctoral Education Research Special Interest Group (DERSIG) with the Australian Association for Research in Education (AARE) and is a reviewer for the Studies in Higher Education (SiHE) and Australian Educational Research (AER) journals.
