Welcome to my home page. I'm an educator specialising in
higher education policy and technology enhanced learning. I also have a background in mathematics education.

I am Education Services Manager at the International Centre of Excellence in Water Resource Management (ICE WaRM), where I coordinate postgraduate programmes offered by five Australian Universities and manage the Centre's education and training programmes.

Before joining ICE WaRM, I was the Manager of Research and Education in the Joanna Briggs Institute. I was responsible for instructional design and flexible delivery of the Institute's training programs as well as the overall management of the education and research function of the Institute.

I began my teaching career in the South Australian Department of Education as a secondary teacher. For 10 years I worked in curriculum development and staff development in Mathematics Education, running programs in schools across South Australia and developing a number of teacher support resources. My Masters thesis focused on Mathematics Education and equity.

I joined the University of South Australia in 1995. My work at the University of South Australia included student support, academic development, curriculum development, strategic advice and leading online education across the University. This culminated in my appointment as Associate Professor for Online Education in 2006. I represented the University at the Australasian Council on Open, Distance and E-Learning (ACODE) , the peak Australasian organisation for universities engaged or interested in open, distance, flexible and e-learning. In 1998 I created the University’s first online teaching and learning platform, UniSAnet, and up until 2008 I managed online education and directed the development of UniSAnet. UniSA has replaced some components of UniSAnet with learnonline in an $11million Personal Learning Environment project that was completed in 2011.

My PhD thesis focused on online education, quality assurance and higher education. 

I was involved in the following Office for Learning and Teaching  (formerly the ALTC and the  Carrick Institute) Teaching and Learning projects:

  • Peer review of Online Learning and Teaching pdf ($150 000)

  • Embedding peer review of learning and teaching in e-learning and blended learning environments pdf ($119 000)

  • Computer Aided Feedback & Assessment System pdf ($113 000)

  • Facilitating flexible, enquiry-based experiential learning through an accessible, three-dimensional virtual learning environment (3DVLE) ($241,000)

I am a regular member of the Office for Learning and Teaching's panels to assess nominations for the Australian Awards of University Teaching; contributing from 2008 to 2013.

For many years I chaired the Education and Training track of the annual AUSWEB conference, and am a member of the Editorial Board of the International Journal on E-Learning, the Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, the Journal of Information Technology Education, Campus-Wide Information Systems and Studies in Learning, Evaluation, Innovation and Development . I also referee papers for the annual E-Learn World Conference on E-Learning in Corporate, Government, Healthcare and Higher Education, ASCILITE and ODLAA conferences.
