Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD - email supervisor to discuss availability.

My research interests span the breadth of educational technologies, but are more closely focused on: personalised mobile technologies and their impact on learning and teaching; school culture and change; augmented and virtual reality and its impact on learning and education. I have a range of research projects underway pertaining to these interests.


I welcome inquiries from Masters and PhD candidates interested in: educational technologies, technology & pedagogy and technology & learning across schools, education communities and initial teacher education. 


My current projects include:

- Measuring the impact of personalised technologies programs on initial teacher education and on digital capabilities

- Investigating whether there is a statistical association between ATAR and screen time

- Historical research on the relationship between pedagogies and technologies

- Exploring the comparative impact of multiple choice tests and branched scenario assessments

- Investigating the impact of campus closure on online learning engagement

I am currently leading the eLearning Program in the School of Education at the University of Adelaide. The eLearning Program is working to embed personalised technologies throughout the Bachelor of Teaching degree in order to help inspire and equip early-career teachers to use technologies to improve student learning.

I also teach and coordinate courses in the Bachelor of Teaching program and the Master of Teaching program.
