Biography

I am a Lecturer in Teacher Education and Course Leader for the Professional Masters of Education, Year 2. I teach courses in Pedagogy, Philosophy of Education and Research Methods at the undergraduate and graduate level.

Research Interests

My teaching and research interests revolve around the use of discussion based, collaborative practices and philosophical content as ways of exploring the world and our place within it. My current research aims at developing a deeper understanding of how experienced facilitators engage students in inquiry dialogue.
