My research is focused on the scholarship of teaching and Academic Development and peer observation of teaching practice.
My theoretical perspective is informed by my action research which encompasses: Peer Observation of Teaching-Peer Partnerships; Academic Development; Transnational Education, Assessment for learning; the integration of learning and work- WIL; and Peer to Peer Mentoring.
I am currently enrolled in a PhD entitled ‘Peer observation of teaching: capturing shifts in identity and conceptions of teaching for lasting change ‘. My thesis will examine the impact of peer observation of teaching (RMIT Peer Partnerships) on conceptions of good practice This research involves a case study of a tertiary model of peer observation-RMIT Peer Partnerships. The study will investigate the impact of peer observation on participant’s conceptions of good teaching practice and academic identity.
I have also collaborated with VE and HE staff both within DSC and across RMIT to lead and co-lead a range of learning and teaching and research projects which includes the 2010 Transnational Teaching for learning (LTIF); the 2008 DSC Building Quality Research Project and the 2007 RMIT Building Research in TAFE project.
I bring to the role of Senior Advisor Learning and Teaching 15 years teaching experience encompassing the Secondary, Adult Migrant Education, Vocational Education and Higher Education sectors. Currently I work as Senior Advisor Learning and Teaching in the School of PCPM. Here I undertake a range of roles which includes to support all aspects of program and course development, develop and provide ongoing needs based staff professional development, develop and co lead diverse learning and teaching projects, support staff to engage in the university’s systems of recognition and rewards, including Teaching Awards and LTIF’s, and contribute to the scholarship of learning and teaching, including through co-writing and publishing peer reviewed outputs in collaboration with my colleagues from within the School and across the university.
I co lead RMIT Peer Partnerships with Ms Angela Clarke (DSC College) and Associate Professor Andrea Chester (Associate PVC learning and Teaching, DSC). RMIT Peer Partnerships is implemented across the university’s 3 Colleges and facilitates formative, developmental peer to peer observation of teaching for continuous improvement in teaching practice
I am passionate about supporting continuous improvement in the quality of learning and teaching for our students and educators, and in doing so, integrate and apply my theoretical knowledge and practical teaching and Academic Development experience to foster, evidence and disseminate good learning and teaching practice.
