Empowering educators to envision the future and engage in democratic collaborations to create
What I care about
Throughout my career I have been fascinated by teachers: how they learn, interact, and collaborate; their professional status; and changes in the profession itself. My perspective has been shaped by my various experiences as a teacher, leader, mentor, learner, and researcher. Now, as a doctoral student, I am applying myself to broad and foundational questions within teacher education: ‘how can teachers’ learning be balanced against time teaching?’, ‘how effective is teacher collaboration in promoting learning?’, and ‘to what extent has the de-intellectualisation of teaching alleviated or hindered teacher recruitment?’.
I am interested in comparing the effectiveness of contrasting models in international education systems which place teacher learning at the heart of the role.
As this work develops I intend to communicate findings and advocate for reform in teacher education policy where alternative models are supported by robust evidence.
