Personal Statement

My current role is to provide research-informed professional learning in school improvement, leadership, literacy, numeracy and assessment, using face to face and online formats. I established my first major ICT project to develop digital portfolios with adults – women@the cutting edge – in Australia in the 1990s. Since then I have written extensively on portfolio development and provided advice to JISC in the UK as an expert consultant. I have a longstanding interest in teacher learning, and while conducting research with teachers using computers in schools I recognised they were developing communities of practice and supporting each other in their work and learning. Soon I encouraged teachers to consider mobile phones as small computers, and to incorporate them into curriculum uses. During four years as Director of research in a state government department in Victoria, Australia I pursued my interest in the design of new learning environments, learning platforms to support equity in education and how research can better inform policy and practice.
