About me

I am a lecturer and researcher at Charles Sturt University, teaching into the Master of Education: Teacher Librarianship. My most recent research investigates how educators experience professional learning through personal learning networks. An outcome of this research is a conceptual model of of learning as a connected professional, which makes a significant contribution to theory and practice in the emerging field of professional networks and learning, enabled through the affordances of social technologies.

I believe that my research has implications for professional learning opportunities of 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 connected learning more authentically into our pedagogical practice.

I have previously worked as a librarian and teacher, and have been fortunate to 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!
