Dr Janet Dyment is an Associate Professor and Deputy Head of School in the Faculty of Education at the University of Tasmania. Prior to working at the University of Tasmania, Janet worked at Lakehead University (Ontario, Canada) and at Boston University (British Columbia, Canada).  She also worked in a number of education organisations, including Outward Bound, Project DARE and the National Outdoor Leadership School.  She is also a trained mathematics, environmental science and outdoor education high school teacher.

Biography

I have worked as a Teacher Educator in the School of Education at the University of Tasmania since 2005.  During this time, I have taught into many teaching specialisations (e.g., health and physical education, leadership, outdoor education, social sciences) as well as many 'core' teacher education units related to curriculum, assessment, pedagogy, research methods and teacher inquiry. I am known for taking an interdisciplinary approach in various curriculum contexts and I seek to make my teaching thematic, integrated and situated in real life contexts. I demonstrate excellence in learning and teaching practice and contemporary curriculum design in all my teaching roles. My receipt of the prestigious Australian Teacher Educator of the Year Award (Australian Teacher Education Association, 2017) and Citation for Outstanding Contribution to Student Learning (UTAS, 2017) for my pioneering research-informed online pedagogies crowns 15 years of meritorious awards and prizes for excellence in teaching.

I am recognised for my high quality scholarship in educational research and my strong publication record in the areas of teacher education, online teaching and learning, and reflective practice.  I have an ambitious and multi-faceted research agenda that has been highly prolific resulting in 59 refereed journal articles, one book, nine book chapters and numerous national/international conference presentations.

I have assumed a number of sustained and significant leadership and administrative positions throughout my academic career.  I am currently the Deputy Head of School in the School of Education.  Prior appointments include Course Coordinator for the Master of Teaching degree two year post-graduate degree which was a leadership role overseeing the studies of more than 500 initial teacher education students and supervising over 30 teacher educators.   I have also been the Research Ethics Coordinator in the Faculty of Education and a member of the university-wide Social Science Human Research Ethics Committee.

Teaching

Interdisciplinary education, health and physical education, outdoor education, leadership, and social sciences, curriculum, pedagogy, teacher inquiry, research methods

Teaching expertise

I promote excellence in curriculum design and engagement at unit, course, and school levels. I am committed to leading my teams to ensure constructive alignment, achieve efficiencies, implement criterion referenced assessment, and map unit/course learning outcomes.  This has been evidenced in my evolving roles as: Curriculum Leader of the Outdoor Education program (2005-14), Course Coordinator of the Master of Teaching Course (2014-16), and Associate Head of School (2016-present),

As unit coordinator, I design curricula to reflect contemporary evidence-based practices, informed by my research. My innovative research into learning and teaching in non-traditional contexts, coupled with my research on reflective practice, are central aspects of my tertiary teaching practice, thus impacting on future teachers of outdoor education and future teacher inquirers.

My early career focus was internal, at unit and course levels. More recently, as Course Coordinator and Associate Head of School, I have supported the shaping of the national political agendas related to Teacher Education that affects curriculum design at UTAS. As a senior teaching/learning leader within the School, I engage with, respond to, and frame up these national agendas.

Expertise

My scholarship makes significant impacts locally, nationally and internationally. At least 12 Tasmanian childcare centres  altered the design of outdoor environments to include natural elements in response to my research exploring the ways in which ‘green’ natural areas (e.g. trees, rocks, gardens) in playgrounds promote engagement for children relegated to the sidelines of conventional barren hard grounds. This work is widely cited and continues to influence schools, non-government organizations, municipal policy makers and international research communities in Canada and Australia.

My conceptual research on teaching and learning in outdoor settings provides outdoor education teachers and academics around the world with a framework and language for bringing the field of outdoor education into conversations with broader educational discourse. It has been noted that my work “tackles enormous, pressing questions…that have left the field with the legacy of a conceptual language that will continue to structure debates within the field for years to come” (Senior Lecturer, University of Edinburgh). Other academics commend my research as “exemplary and stretches the boundaries of how we conceptualize outdoor education” (A/Professor, University of Cape Breton, Canada).

My recent research that focuses on non-traditional learning environments in the online space involved more than 25 teacher educators from every accredited online teacher education provider in Australia. These key informants supported my development of a set of best-practices for online students impacting the study experiences of the online teacher education students in Australia.

I am committed to communicating my research findings to the broader community, disseminating my publications in practitioner forums, professional journals, such as Reflections (reaching >15,000 early childhood educators in Australia) and Pathways (reaching >500 Canadian teachers), and the public via media interviews with ABC Radio and articles published in the Hobart Mercury newspaper.

National and International Research Standing

My scholarly international reputation and impact is evidenced through direct invitations to publish in international handbooks and review edited books (e.g. International Research Handbook on ChildhoodNature (Springer); Urban Environmental Education Review (Cornell); Research Methods in Outdoor Studies (Routledge)). Further testament to my strong international standing are the following invitations/requests to:

  • Review books and book proposals from prominent publishers, including Oxford (Outdoor Learning Environments: Spaces for Learning, Discovery and Risk-taking), Springer (Physical Activity and Health Promotion in the Early Years), Palgrave MacMillan (The Palgrave Handbook of Transformative Education for Sustainable Development); UNESCO International Bureau of Education (Sustainability in Australian Schools).
  • Assess funding applications for the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) (this is the federal government scheme = ARC equivalent).
  • Examine masters/Ph.D. dissertations from Australia (2), Canada (1) and New Zealand (1).
  • Attend invitation-only research colloquiums in Denmark, Alaska and Australia.
  • Use my research instruments (e.g. questionnaires) from academics, HDR students, and practitioners (requests from Norway, Italy, USA, Canada, Turkey, Australia).
  • Host five international visiting scholars at UTAS.
  • Publish with diverse international colleagues, from Canada, England, Scotland, New Zealand, China and Spain.

Research Leadership and Service

I serve on editorial boards of key international journals in my research field (Environmental Education Research; Australian Journal of Environmental Education; Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning; Journal of Outdoor and Environmental Learning; Journal of Environmental Education; Canadian Journal of Environmental Education). In addition, I regularly review for these and other journals. My national and international profile has increased notably in the last several years due to leadership roles in national and international conferences.

  • Record numbers of delegates (>250) attended the National Outdoor Education Conference, a conference that I co-convened in Hobart in April 2018. My academic reputation was a key determinant in awarding the biannual conference to Hobart for the first time in 39 years.
  • The International Outdoor Education Research Conference (Nov. 2018, Sunshine Coast) will attract >120 delegates. As Academic Convener on the International Organizing Committee, I led the process of abstract submission, review, and acceptance/rejection.
  • More than 100 academics and HDR students attended the inaugural Research Symposium of the Australian Association of Environmental Education that I co-convened in 2014. This event’s success resulted in an invitation to guest edit a special edition of the Australian Journal of Environmental Education and led to the symposium becoming a biennual event.

Collaboration

I regularly collaborate with education colleagues from Monash University and Federation University.  I maintain strong collaborative relationships with researchers in Canada at Brock University and Lakehead University.  I also collaborate with colleagues in China and Sweden.

Student View: A pilot study into the student experience of online learning across disciplines (2018)$15,613
Description
As the growth in online higher education continues at UTAS and beyond, there are a number of important and timely questions about the ways online students engage with learning that have profound relevance to our College. This Hothouse application builds on existing research in the School of Education (SOE) that explores the learning experiences of online initial teacher education students. A systematic literature search (of 457 A1 articles) revealed that the majority of research on student experiences of online learning examines their experiences of a single technology (e.g., webconference/ facebook/ digital gaming) and is often captured at a single time point (e.g., end of semester via interview or exit survey). This review has revealed important gaps in the research literature, namely a need to: 1) interpret student experience more holistically across multiple units of study and 2) capture student voice over time.This Hothouse project will: collect online student-generated data (the Student View) collected periodically throughout semester; identify how, when, and why students engage with online learning in their units; compare engagement among units; and analyse patterns of engagement, for fully online units and blended delivery units.This project aligns with a number of other UTAS projects researching online higher education. The projects pioneering methodology will enable new modes of knowledge generation, increase our understanding of the student experience, improve student outcomes and retention, and support CALEs uptake of the UTAS Technology Enhanced Learning and Teaching White Paper, the UTAS Blended Learning Model and the UTAS Strategy on Open Educational Practice. For example, the project can specifically investigate whether or not our units consistently meet element 3 of the White Paper, mandating purposefully designed high impact learning experiences that enable them to achieve the learning outcomes of the unit and course.

Research Supervision

I demonstrate leadership, excellence and impact through research training, a contribution that has grown substantially in recent years. I have co-commenced eight Ph.D. candidates, four as Primary Supervisor and six with scholarships, attesting to the quality of candidates I attract. I have supported four graduates to completion. Two of my Ph.D. graduates won full time positions at UTAS; my most recent graduate received two “A” awards from her examiners. I provide HDR candidates mentoring, as well as rigorous formative critique. I am deeply committed to contributing to other dimensions of the RHD community at UTAS and beyond: offering sessions to Education RHD students on method(ology); attending as an external member of Confirmation of Candidature presentations; lecturing in the Graduate Certificate of Research;  and examining external Masters and Ph.D. dissertations.
