Working toward a better outcome for kids

Dr Adam Lloyd is using his diverse background in engineering, maths teaching, and physical activity and nutrition research to investigate education outcomes for children and improve equity and excellence in education.

Dr Adam lloyd

A member of the University of Newcastle’s (UON) Teachers and Teaching Research Centre, Adam is currently working on several projects in education. These include improving student engagement and outcomes in mathematics; evaluating a disability awareness program; higher education pathways for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students; teacher professional development; and the roles of parents and teachers in student aspirations.

A former engineer at BHP’s Newcastle Steelworks, Adam set off to teach snowboarding in the US after the Steelworks closed in 1999. It was here he realised he wanted to be a teacher.

“I was in Vail, Colorado snowboarding with a group of students and I had this light bulb moment of – I really enjoy this interaction with kids. I want to be a teacher,” he recalls.

After completing a diploma of education, Adam worked as a teacher at Scotch College Melbourne and also began his Master of Education at The University of Melbourne.

“At Scotch, I taught maths and science and was heavily involved in co-curricular activities. I recall in my third year being given a class of students who were underperforming and had been for some time. Despite the resources, amazing facilities and available support they were still not achieving. These were students who had never really tasted any sort of success in the standard maths classroom,” Adam said.

“That particular class at Scotch challenged me to really think about my approach to teaching, and also to try and better understand the different influences that affect student outcomes.”

“These students aren’t lacking aspirations – it is other factors keeping them back from higher education.

After his tenure at Scotch, Adam spent time teaching in the UK, and working in the corporate sector before embarking on his PhD with Professors Philip Morgan, David Lubans and Ron Plotnikoff from UON’s Priority Research Centre for Physical Activity and Nutrition.

“My PhD was part of the Healthy Dads Healthy Kids program and focused on the impact of the program on fathers’ parenting practices and subsequently their kids’ lifestyle behaviours. I was really interested in what goes on in the home environment and how that impacts on kids,” he explained.

Now, as a member of the Teachers and Teaching Research Centre under the guidance of Professor Jenny Gore, Adam is working on several projects including projects relating to STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education, quality teaching, program evaluation, and two significant Australian Government Department of Education and Training Higher Education Participation and Partnerships Program (HEPPP) funded projects, which are being undertaken during 2016.

The first HEPPP project is titled ‘Unlocking Capacity and Empowering Choices: Indigenous Students’ Aspirations for Higher Education’. It aims to shape targeted university outreach initiatives that resonate with and build on the ways in which Indigenous students talk about what interests them when thinking about their educational and occupational futures.

This project builds on a preliminary study from 2015 funded by UON’s Centre of Excellence for Equity in Higher Education where a team of researchers (including Adam) was able to explore data containing over 10,000 surveys to show the aspirations of Indigenous students are just as diverse as non-Indigenous students.

“Indigenous students are aspiring to similar careers as non-Indigenous students, but when you look at how many are actually going on to university something changes. These students aren’t lacking aspirations – it’s other factors keeping them back from higher education.”

The second HEPPP project is titled ‘Guiding Futures: The role of teachers in the formation of students' aspirations for higher education’. The aim of this project is to investigate the impact of teachers on students’ aspirations for higher education.

Many studies have addressed factors impacting on the under-representation of students from low SES and other disadvantaged backgrounds in universities in general, and in high status universities and degrees more specifically. However, the role of teachers in shaping and supporting students’ intentions to pursue university education has largely been overlooked.

This project will provide insight into the explicit and implicit messages students glean from their teachers about their aspirations for higher education and ways of getting there.

“It’s still very early days for both of these HEPPP projects, however preliminary analysis suggests many students don’t really understand the differences between TAFE and University and/or don’t really understand what university is about. How do students aspire to something if they don’t really understand what it is?”

© 2017 Ministry of Science and Technology, TaiwanDeclining enrolments in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines and a lack of interest in STEM careers are concerning at a time when society is becoming more reliant on complex technologies. We examine student aspirations for STEM careers by drawing on surveys conducted annually from 2012 to 2015. School students in years 3 to 12 (n = 6492) were asked to indicate their occupational choices. A logistic regression analysis showed that being in the older cohorts, possessing high cultural capital, being male, having a parent in a STEM occupation and high prior achievement in reading and numeracy, were significant. This analysis provides a strong empirical basis for school-based initiatives to improve STEM participation. In particular, strategies should target the following: the persistent lack of interest by females in some careers, improving student academic achievement in both literacy and numeracy and expanding knowledge of STEM careers, especially for students without familial STEM connections.

© 2015 Human Kinetics, Inc.Background: This study examined potential parenting-related mediators of children's physical activity and dietary behavior change in the Healthy Dads, Healthy Kids (HDHK) community program. Methods: A randomized controlled trial was conducted with 45 overweight/obese (mean [SD] age = 39.8 [5.4] years; BMI = 32.4 [3.8]) fathers and their children (n = 77; 58% boys; mean [SD] age = 7.7 [2.5] years). Families were randomized to either the HDHK program or wait-list control group. The program involved 7 sessions. Fathers and their children were assessed at baseline and at 14 weeks for physical activity (pedometery) and core food intake (Questionnaire). Fathers' lifestyle-related parenting practices included; self-efficacy, beliefs, modeling, logistic support, rules, cophysical activity, shared mealtime frequency and intentions. Results: Significant intervention effects were found for cophysical activity and modeling physical activity. Cophysical activity mediated children's physical activity in the intervention ('mediated effect,' AB = 653, 95% CI = 4-2050) and was responsible for 59.5% of the intervention effect. Fathers' beliefs mediated children's percent energy from core foods (AB = 1.51, 95% CI = 0.05-5.55) and accounted for 72.9% of the intervention effect. Conclusions: Participation in the HDHK program positively impacted on fathers' cophysical activity with their child and beliefs about healthy eating which mediated changes in children's diet and physical activity behaviors.

© 2014 The Authors.Objectives The aim was to evaluate the impact of the 'Healthy Dads, Healthy Kids' programme on fathers' and mothers' activity- and diet-related parenting practices. Methods Overweight/obese fathers (n = 87) and their primary school-aged children (56% boys) were randomized to either (i) 7-week programme (n = 45) or (ii) control group (n = 42). The programme involved four sessions for fathers only and three for fathers/children. Mothers were not directly involved. Parenting practices of both fathers and mothers were measured using the parenting strategies for eating and activity scale at baseline and 14-week follow-up. Results Intention-to-treat analysis using linear mixed models revealed significant group-by-time effects for fathers' limit setting (P = 0.048, d = 0.36) and reinforcement for multiple lifestyle behaviours (P = 0.001, d = 0.79). No significant intervention effects were found for fathers' control, monitoring, discipline or mothers' parenting practices (P > 0.05). Conclusions The Healthy Dads, Healthy Kids programme had a positive impact on some parenting practices for fathers but not mothers.

Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of the 'Healthy Dads, Healthy Kids (HDHK)' program when delivered by trained facilitators in community settings. Method: A two-arm randomized controlled trial of 93 overweight/obese fathers (mean [SD] age=40.3 [5.3] years; BMI=32.5 [3.8] kg/m2) and their primary school-aged children (n=132) from the Hunter Region, Australia. In 2010-2011, families were randomized to either: (i) HDHK intervention (n=48 fathers, n=72 children) or (ii) wait-list control group. The 7-week intervention included seven sessions and resources (booklets, pedometers). Assessments were held at baseline and 14-weeks with fathers' weight (kg) as the primary outcome. Secondary outcomes for fathers and children included waist, BMI, blood pressure, resting heart rate, physical activity (pedometry), and self-reported dietary intake and sedentary behaviors. Results: Linear mixed models (intention-to-treat) revealed significant between-group differences for fathers' weight (P < .001, d= 0.24), with HDHK fathers losing more weight (- 3.3. kg; 95%CI, - 4.3, - 2.4) than control fathers (0.1. kg; 95%CI, - 0.9,1.0). Significant treatment effects (P < .05) were also found for fathers' waist (d= 0.41), BMI (d= 0.26), resting heart rate (d= 0.59), energy intake (d= 0.49) and physical activity (d= 0.46) and for children's physical activity (d= 0.50) and adiposity (d= 0.07). Discussion: HDHK significantly improved health outcomes and behaviors in fathers and children, providing evidence for program effectiveness when delivered in a community setting. © 2014 Published by Elsevier Inc.

The primary aim of this study was to examine a range of potential behavioral and maternal/paternal correlates of adiposity in children. Secondary aims were to examine (a) correlates of screen-time, diet and physical activity and (b) if there were differences in maternal and paternal physical activity- and dietary-related parenting practices. Cross-sectional analysis was conducted using 70 families with children (59% boys (41/70), mean age 8.4 (±2.4) years). Parenting practices were measured using the Parenting Strategies for Eating and Activity Scale. Children's outcomes included: 7-day pedometry (physical activity), screen-time, percent energy from core foods (Food frequency questionnaire) and BMI z-score. Multiple regression models were generated to examine the associations between maternal and paternal parenting practices and children's variables. In the regression analyses, fathers' BMI (p < .01) and mothers' control (p < .001) were significantly associated with child weight status. Fathers' reinforcement (p < .01) was significantly associated with child physical activity. For screen-time, mothers' monitoring (p < .001) and child characteristics [age (p = .01), sex (p = .01), BMI z-score (p = .03)] were significant predictors. Mothers' parenting practices [limit setting (p = .01), reinforcement (p = .02)] and child screen-time (p = .02) were significantly associated with intake of core foods. Despite some similarities within families, three out of five parenting constructs were significantly different between mothers and fathers. Mothers and fathers have different parental influences on their children's weight status and lifestyle behaviors and both should be included in lifestyle interventions targeting children. A focus on maternal parenting specifically relating to screen-time and diet, and father's physical activity parenting and weight status may support their children in developing more healthy behaviors. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.
