Noleine.Fitzallen@utas.edu.au

Dr Noleine Fitzallen joined the Faculty of Education as a Lecturer in Assessment in 2013. Prior to this she held other positions at the University of Tasmania, including Associate Lecturer in Mathematics in the University Preparation Program in the Centre of University Partnerships and Pathways, and Lecturer in Mathematics Education. Noleine first joined the University as a Laboratory Technician in the School of Plant Science in 1998.

Biography

Noleine is an experienced secondary mathematics and science teacher (Years 7-12) who has been involved in curriculum development for students across those years. She has made major contributions to curriculum resources in three national projects: Mathematics Pathways from VET to Higher Education; STEMCrAfT: Building capacity for rural and regional STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) teachers using a peer support model; and Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers Top Drawer: Resources for Teaching Statistics. Noleine's experiences as an analytical chemist in the beverage and pulp and paper industries prior to becoming a teacher have given her insights into the importance of STEM skills and knowledge when students make the transition from school to the workforce.

Expertise

Research areas include:

  • Investigating the way in which students use the exploratory data analysis software, TinkerPlots: Dynamic Data Exploration, to develop statistical reasoning skills.
  • Investigating the integration of ICT into teaching practices.
  • Developing, implementing, and assessing integrated STEM curricula.
  • Collaborating on the Constructive Alignment of Student Learning Project.

Research Themes

Noleine's research aligns with the University's research theme of Data, Knowledge and Decisions. Her research interests include the way in which young students develop an understanding of collecting, representing, analysing, and making decisions about data - the Practice of Statistics. Development of an understanding of the variation in data in the primary years will support students to appreciate the way in which data can be used to inform decisions and to work with 'big data' later in life.

Collaboration

Noleine is currently involved in four national projects, which focus on STEM Education. These projects involve partnerships with the Queensland University of Technology, James Cook University, the University of Notre Dame, and cross-sector collaborations with TAFE and the Department of Education in Tasmania. The projects include the delivery of professional learning for teachers, innovative technology learning experiences for secondary and primary students, and the development of resources that complement and enhance the Australian Curriculum.

Investigating Academics Perspectives on STEM (2019)$7,439
Description
Investigating Academics Perspectives on STEM is funded by the University of Tasmania CALE Hothouse Program. The project aims to further the preliminary findings of individuals perceptions of STEM learning environments and extend the research to explore the impact of STEM educators understanding of STEM on students STEM learning outcomes. The project team will: (1) further pilot and develop a previous research instrument: Draw a STEM Learning Environment Test and its associated Rubric, and (2) use the instruments to examine perceptions of academics of STEM at UTAS.

Exploring the Intersection of Energy Literacy and Financial Literacy (2018)$11,680
Description
Lack of financial literacy and energy literacy have negative impacts on people from vulnerable communities, which limit their ability to make informed decisions about energy use and management of associated financial obligations. Supporting improved financial and energy literacies is particularly relevant and urgent as energy costs are increasing and taking up larger, often unaffordable, portions of household budgets. Currently, the Australian Government is negotiating with energy providers to ensure regular communication with consumers about potential energy savings. Although these negotiations may benefit consumers, it is unlikely that changes in pricing alone will foster more discerning energy usage in consumers who already lack energy literacy. Poor financial and energy literacies will continue to create significant barriers to consumers being able to understand and make use of communication from energy providers. The research will seek to answer:1. What is the intersection of energy and financial literacies in the community?2. In what ways do people draw upon their personal energy and financial literacies when making decisions about the use of energy?3. What are possible learning interventions that could influence, support, and impact decision-making and energy use behaviours? This project will lay the foundations for an ARC Linkage Grant application in collaboration with Aurora Energy. It will draw on research conducted already as part of the Get Bill Smart project, conducted by Dr Phillipa Watson and colleagues, funded by the Department of Industry, Innovation, and Science.

Putting the Spotlight on Learning, Motivation and Engagement (2018)$19,933
Description
This project will use the lens of constructive alignment to design, implement, and evaluate innovative learning programs. The general questions of the research are how constructive alignment (CA)the gearing of teaching and assessment methods towards the outcomes learners are expected to attaininfluences learners activity and self-regulation, and how it affects outcomes such as achievement, motivation, engagement, and satisfaction with learning.

Modelling with data: Advancing STEM in the primary curriculum (2015 - 2018)$603,900
Description
Improving the nations skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) remains acontinuing concern, especially given the decline in international test results. The project will introduce a newapproach to promoting this learning across grades 3-6 through modelling with data. With a focus on inquiryprocesses involving data variation and uncertainty within STEM-based contexts, the project will develop theimportant mathematical and statistical literacies needed for lifting student achievements. In advancing boththeory and practice, the project will contribute to knowledge of primary students capabilities for STEMproblem solving and ways of enhancing implementation of the Australian Curriculum.

Teaching Secondary Mathematics (2014 - 2015)$76,434
Description
The project will investigate; 1) how education jurisdictions and university mathematics educators can collaborate to construct a professional learning program for secondary mathematics teachers; 2) how a collaboratively planned research based 5 day professional learning program can influence the knowledge, beliefs and practice of secondary mathematics teachers; 3) the extent to which changed practices are noticed by students; 4) the impacts of a collaboratively planned research based 5 day professional learning program on students attitudes to mathematics. The PL program will include innovative elements. In addition research detecting the impacts of teacher PL on students is rare and so the results of the project should be readily publishable in high quality journals e.g. Mathematics Teacher Education and Development and the Journal of Mathematics Teachers Education. Co-construction of PL programs is also rare and hence the documentation and analysis of this aspect of the project will make a further contribution to the research literature.
