Robin is a Lecturer in Access and Social Inclusion as well as an affiliate researcher with the Peter Underwood Centre for Educational Attainment.  Robin's research interests include pathways to higher education, educational aspirations, parental engagement and social inclusion. 

Robin has a diverse background with a PhD in Aquaculture Nutrition and experience working on industry research priorities from 2007 – 2013.  In 2013, she made a career switch into education pathways and has successfully managed two Office of Learning and Teaching grants and a number of other internally and externally funded research projects.

Robin coordinates the Student Aspiration Raising Community of Practice (STAR CoP) which aims to lift student aspirations and educational outcomes for Tasmania by providing a learning environment where University of Tasmania staff can learn, share and collaborate with each other.   This group also hosts Aspirations Matter which is in its 3rd year and will be co-hosted with the Peter Underwood Centre for Educational Attainment in 2016.

Articulating curriculum design principles for open access (2016)$39,000
Description
The project will articulate the principles underlying curriculum design in open access enabling programs at three Australian universities. The project is timely with increased student enrolments in enabling or bridging programs and growing numbers of university and non-university providers delivering such programs. The project addresses a gap in knowledge as all previous studies or funding have examined curriculum in undergraduate and postgraduate studies only. The project aims to: i. Examine the curriculum design approaches in three university enabling programs across Australia; ii. Articulate the guiding principles underlying curriculum design in these enabling programs; and iii. In the light of these principles, facilitate the development of a strategic discussion on good practice in enabling curriculum design at a national level.

Equipping parents to support their children's aspiration: what works? (2016)$56,620
Description
parents, report that they want the best for their childrens future. Getting a good education is a part of the aspiration of most parents, regardless of SES status. Parents from mid and high SES backgrounds usually have educational cultural capital to support their childrens educational aspiration. This means they can confidently access information they need about possible education pathways within and beyond school, and know where to find out about financial and other support resources available to facilitate access to higher education. There is a strong theoretical basis for the effectiveness of early outreach to children and families. However, evidence as to the nature and features of programs that are most effective in engaging low SES parents in building their childrens educational aspirations is limited. This project addresses that evidence gap. It will: build on partners combined experience and international literature to identify features of parent engagement and information programs and resources that are cost efficient and effective in informing and supporting low SES parents aspirations for their childrens participation in higher education;produce a web resource for institutions use in design of parent engagement and information programs and resources that are effective in informing and supporting low SES parents aspirations for their childrens participation in higher education.

Reskilling the manufacturing workforce and developing capabilities for the future (2015)$50,000
Description
Australias future in the next three to five years depends on a stronger workforce with more qualified engineers and associated professionals with the high level skills capable of delivering the needs of growing industries such as advanced manufacturing and the maritime sector. In recent years, Australias traditional manufacturing industries like construction, automotive and forestry have seen a decline in business leaving much of the current workforce looking to utilise their technical skills and knowledge elsewhere. Hence, providing pathways that allow the reskilling or upskilling of the current workforce, to develop more complex skills required for future industries becomes essential. This project will initially focus on the engineering and associated skills required for the growing Tasmanian advanced manufacturing and maritime industry. It will investigate what pathways exist or may be required in higher education and vocational education and training to meet these needs and will serve as a pilot for a full application examining this nationally.
