Dr Jodie Hunter PhD, MEd, PG Dip Prim, BA

Senior Lecturer

Institute of Education

I have broad research interests in Pasifika education and the teaching and learning of mathematics. Both in the UK and in New Zealand I have been involved in collaborative work with teachers and students across the country to facilitate change in their mathematics classrooms. My previous research while working at Plymouth University included a strong focus on developing early algebraic reasoning in primary classrooms. This included a focus on teacher professional development, classroom and mathematical practices, and student perspectives. Since my return to New Zealand I have a growing interest in the development of culturally responsive teaching for Pasifika students in the mathematics classroom. Central to this area is the need to consider the cultural, linguistic and social contexts of Pasifika students and to develop stronger home/community and school partnerships.

Jodie Hunter is a lecturer in the Institute of Education and teaches papers in the area of Mathematics Education and Pasifika education. She has previously worked in the area of mathematics education at Plymouth University, UK in the Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching and Learning. Her research interests include effective mathematics teaching and culturally responsive teaching for Pasifika learners.
