Career summary

Qualifications

  • MPH, Curtin University, Australia, 2000. The Nature and Scope of Injuries in Rural Farming Communities

Biography

During 2010, as part of her role as the Teaching Fellow, Emerging Technologies Carey investigated innovative technologies including e-portfolios to facilitate the learning and teaching of undergraduate students. Since then she has explored Echo360 systems and asynchronous online discussions. Carey has also been involved with facilitating high quality work integrated learning experiences for supervisors and students. Currently as part of her research higher degree studies she is investigating the use of mobile learning in healthcare environments. Past projects include:

  • Creative media technology use in nursing simulation environments
  • e-Portfolios
  • Learning and teaching within curricula
  • Rural and remote health promotion - Injury control, immunisation
  • Diabetes type 2
  • Wound healing

Research Themes

Carey's research aligns with the Faculty of Health's research theme of healthcare services and support and is complementary to the University's research theme of Better Health. Her research specifically builds on the Discipline of Nursing and Midwifery theme of technology and communication. This research complements technology-enhanced learning and teaching strategies being progressed by the Faculty, aligning with the subthemes of better policy and better systems. Carey is exploring information and communication technologies that will support workforce development in health care environments. The findings will inform clinicians and the School about current technology and resources used in practice; enable research outputs that can improve access to evidence-based information in the workplace. The findings will facilitate strengthening communication between UTAS and practice partners; and outcomes will be of direct benefit to clinicians and students based in health care settings. This research will specifically benefit clinicians based in primary care settings.

Investigating the transformative role of Echo360 on learning and teaching (2013)$24,790
Description
This project investigates the transformative role of Echo360 on learning and teaching through: a) examining the impacts of the technology on student learning behaviours including learning approaches, class attendance, and the use of Echo360 generated-materials; b) investigating the relationship between class attendance, the use of Echo360-generated materials, and student performance; and c) evaluating the impacts of Echo360 on teaching efficiency and identifying effective practices in using the technology to enhance flexible and online/distance delivery. Participants of the project not only include lecturers of different disciplines, but also an education developer and a learning service coordinator. Given the wide use of Echo360 in Australian universities and limited research on the impacts of the technology on learning and teaching, there is a great opportunity for the project to be extended.
