Personal profile

Research Biography

I have taught in Australian schools for over twenty years. While teaching, I began a Master of Gifted Education and followed this with a Master of Arts by research. I left classroom teaching to concentrate on my studies when I received a PhD scholarship. I was drawn back to teaching in the university context and worked in two universities before becoming a continuing staff member at Flinders University in the School of Education. I am married and have two children.

Research Interests

I am interested in educational psychology and  teaching and learning were specifically.
I have a particular interest in self-directed and self-regulated learning, inquiry and problem solving. I am interested in student engagement in learning and how to promote this. I am interested in researching Middle Schooling, International Baccalaureate education, gifted students, students who have difficulty learning,and the influence of school context on learning. I have an interest in the arts,  and dance in particular, and would be interested to be involved in research projects related to learning in these areas.
