Personal Statement

Overview

Started here at Curtin in 2008 as a Lecturer in Instructional Design working for the Centre for eLearning (formerly School of Remote, Regional and Elearning) attached to the Faculty of Humanities.  I'm also involved with a Virtual Worlds research project in the School of Nursing and Midwifery.  This year (2010) I'm on the Committee for the Educational Computing Association of Western Australia.

Teaching

I'm a theatre practitioner turned drama teacher turned "edupunk" and advocate for technology-mediated education and arts. I've been co-chair of the IDEA (International Drama/Theatre and Education Association)  SIG for Drama and New Media since 2001 (Bergen 2001, Ottawa 2004, Hong Kong 2007) - in Belém 2010  this will be renamed Science, Technology and New Media.

I continue to investigate the nexus between drama, education and virtual worlds.

I've taught in K-12 and tertiary contexts, teaching Contemporary Performance, Interdisciplinary Practice, Primary and Secondary Drama and Cultural History and Theory at Edith Cowan University in Western Australia, and Drama as Social Action, Drama for Community Cultural Development, Process Drama and Studies in Directing for Queensland University of Technology. 

I developed an online module in research education (Practice-led research in Arts, Media and Design) for the Australian Technologies Network of Universities  I've also worked with the innovative IT team at Presbyterian Ladies College and recently accepted an offer to work in Instructional Design for Curtin University’s School of Regional, Remote and Elearning. I want to keep growing my understanding and engagement with internet culture and have always endeavoured to share my work with students and colleagues.

I've taught in the following areas:
