Welcome to the online place where I share my research and teaching experiences. I created this website in 2011 when I started my Ph.D program in Educational Psychology – and am happy to say that I completed my doctorate in June 2015! Along the way, I have posted about my Ph.D studies and travels (you can read my recent blog post here).
Since 2014, I have been collaborating with Professor Robert Klassen through his Teacher Selection Project. In 2016, I was awarded a Vice Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Research Fellowship to conduct research on teachers’ non-academic attributes (personal characteristics such as motivation and adaptability) for three years at UNSW Sydney under the mentorship of Professor Andrew Martin in the School of Education.
In 2017, I partnered with the NSW Department of Education to conduct a three-year research project guided by the question: How can we identify successful teachers in NSW? The aim of this funded partnership is to validate a proposed model of teacher success as a framework for recruiting, selecting, and retaining quality teachers. Stay tuned for progress updates!
In 2018, my research will also involve exploring museum-based professional development programs for teachers. In addition to studying teachers and promoting professional development, I enjoy supporting preservice teachers. This year I will be teaching a course on child development as part of a new Master of Teaching Primary Program.
