I am a lecturer and researcher at Charles Sturt University, and am the Course Director of the Master of Education: Teacher Librarianship. My research focuses on information and digital literacies, developed through networked and connected learning. I have several research interests, including personal learning networks, networked and connected learning and school libraries and teacher librarianship.
I believe that my research has implications for individuals in many different fields. I am very interested in how we can break down the silos that exist between different professions, and would love to hear from others who wish to explore this further. I also hope that my research will build foundations for rethinking how we bring networked and connected learning more authentically into our pedagogical practice.
I have been an educator for over 25 years and have taught at every level from Prep to Post-Graduate. Through positions as a teacher, teacher librarian and learning designer, I have had many wonderful learning opportunities across a variety of roles, in a variety of contexts. When I’m not working, I love reading, playing with my Jack Russell, named Ruby. I also love cooking (and eating!). I’d love to travel more and see the world, and eat my way around many different countries and cultures!
