Personal Statement

I am a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences: Education at the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS). I have a background in special education and currently co-ordinate a range of subjects in that area. I am also responsible for a variety of research-based subjects at the undergraduate and post-graduate levels.


ICT Interests

My doctorate examined the learning experiences and characteristics of young, competent Internet users when engaged in authentic, informal activity using the Internet.

I am currently engaged in a funded research project which explores the cognitive and socio-cultural implications of creating and maintaining an online presence.

Other relevant collaborative projects which I have worked on recently, include:
* Exemplary practice in six schools using computer-based learning (NSW DET and SILC funded)
* Prospective teachers' authoring and use of their own online learning design (LAMS) (ASCILITE funded)

The Centre for Research in Learning and Change at UTS has an identified strength of 'Teaching and Learning in a Digital Age'. Through this program, my colleagues and I aim to work collaboratively with researchers at The University of Hull and The University of East Anglia on a project titled 'Mind the Gap: Investigating connections between adolescent digital culture and school education.
