Roles and responsibilities
I am a researcher with both the School of Humanities and The Graduate School of Education (GSE). Until December 2018, I was the Humanities and Social Sciences Coordinator (secondary)at the GSE. As well as teaching on a number of core units on the Master of Teaching, I also coordinated the Master of Teaching Interventions for Learning unit and the undergraduate broadening unit, Education for a Global Society.
I am currently working on both History Education, and, History of Childhood/Education reasearch.
The Education research is examing the ways in which practicing Humanities and Socila Science (HASS) teachers engage (or not) with historical scholarship and how this engagment impacts upon their planning and teaching. The aim of this research is to make histoprical scholarship easily accessible to HASS teachers, especially that which links directly to the curriculum. A similar poroject is being undertaken by researchers from the University of York, UK and Leeds Trinity University, UK. Comparative data generated from this research will be used to compile local, national and global solutions to the barriers teachers face in accessing scholarship. Initial findings will be presented at the History Educators International Research Network Conference in 2020.
The History of Childhood/Education research I am undertaking is expanding on research published in my monograph, Nurture and Neglect: Childhood in Sixteenth Century Northern England, on the lived experiences of apprenticeships in the Early Modern period. The focus of the present research is on the structures that prevented apprentices from completing their term of indenture, whether that be circumstances, people in authority or apprentices themselves. Initial findings will be presented at the History of Education Conference at University College London in November 2019.
I have taught on the Humanities and Social Sciences Curriculum units and various other units for the Masters of Teaching and Graduate Diploma of Education. I also teach on undergraduate broadening units offered by the Graduate School of Education.
Whilst undertaking my PhD at UWA, I taught on a number of History undergraduate units as well as being involved in curriculum development and desiging resources.
