Research Expertise
Curriculum studies in the social science area including history education, geography education, values education, and the related pedagogy. These curriculum studies have been historically focused but also include contemporary syllabus development and futures studies. I am interested in developing curriculum that leads to improvement in problematic stereotyping and prejudicial behaviours in children. I try to link effective pedagogy with the curriculum knowledge and skills. I also work with schools in developing reflective professional development with regard to pedagogy.

Teaching Expertise

Administrative Expertise

In an era of international multimedia exposure and a global economy, there is no question that global education (GE) must be part of the school curriculum. Effective delivery of GE is reliant on adequate teacher preparation. A group of teacher educators at one University sought to raise the profile of GE with pre-service teachers through the integration of global perspectives in various courses. This paper explores pre-service teacher perceptions of the importance of GE and their learning as a result of this emphasis. Additionally, pre-service teacher preferences for further learning about GE are examined. It is apparent that pre-service teachers are interested in GE, especially in terms of how they can incorporate it in their teaching and, with exposure over a number of semesters student understandings develop, creating better prepared teachers of GE. Not surprisingly, these students were primarily focused on their future classroom practices rather than their role in the world more generally. Additionally, it was clearly evident that unique GE approaches were linked to specific teaching disciplines, an indication that GE continues to be a difficult concept to incorporate without explicit guidance for integration, something not always easy in a university setting. © 2014 Taylor and Francis.
