Achievements

  • In April 2014, I completed three years as Chair of the Teachers' work/Teachers' unions SIG (AERA).
  • In 2005 I was presented with the ATEA Research Recognition Awards for Early Career Researchers.

General Responsibilities

As a University Associate I have both research and teaching responsibilities.

I collaborate with several colleagues to undertake research. My recent teaching is in post-graduate courses.

Teaching Responsibilities

My teaching responsibilities vary from semester to semester as I teach a variety of units in differing courses at any particular time within the Faculty. I currently teach EMT507 Planning for Positive Behaviour, in the MTeach course.
