Professional Biography

I have lived in New Zealand and worked at Massey University since 1994. Previously I lectured at Leicester University in England, following ten years as a teacher of students with special educational needs in primary and secondary schools.

For several years I was an elected Council member of the New Zealand Association for Research in Education, I have served as an invited member on the Marsden Fund Social Sciences Panel and the Performance Based Research Fund (PBRF).

In 2012 I received the Teacher Education Forum of Aotearoa New Zealand career excellence award and a Massey University Research Excelelnce medal.

Qualifications

  • Doctor of Philosophy - Massey University (2001)

Research Expertise

Research Interests

A major strand of my research for over twenty years has been the relationships between education policy and teachers' work and learning. There are two key questions here.

  • First, how do politicians and officials attempt to persuade teachers of the value of new policies, and support them to change their practices?
  • Second, how do teachers mediate, or respond to official policy mandates?

The first requires examination of policy trajectories: how do particular aspects of education get framed as 'problems' or 'crises' that government needs to address, what language and processes are used to frame policy options and on what basis does the preferred policy option get selected? Then, how does the machinery of government, the polity, gear up to persuade teachers that it is in their interests to change their customary ways of teaching and interacting with students?

The second looks at the extent to which, and how, teachers and their representatives respond to policy. Do they change? On what basis do they accept new education policy as valuable, or not? How long does it take for policy to change teaching and learning practices? Whcih policies are beneficial, and which harmful?

Papers on these questions have been published in Teaching and Teacher Education, Journal of Educational Administration and History, Journal of Education Policy, Cambridge Journal of Education, Educational Research and Learning Culture and Social Interaction.

For the last ten years, I have had a leadership role in research ethics both within the university and, more recently, the New Zealand Association for Research in Education. The issues that interest me here concern:

  • the place of ethics in the modern enterprise university;
  • the relationship between institutional ethics committees, researchers and their disciplinary norms; and
  • applied professional ethics in education (researchers and practitioners).

Papers on these issues have been published in the International Journal of Research and Method in Education, Educational Action Research, Ethics and Education and Education Policty Futures.

I am developing research programmes in four areas:

  1. Teaching and learning in everyday activities and settings
  2. Educational charities
  3. Oral histories of teachers' lives, work and careers
  4. The quality of education policy advice

Research Opportunities

  • Teaching and Learning in Everyday Activities and Settings  (Ongoing) This research project explores how people learn in their everyday lives and the relationships between individual learning and family, neighbourhood and local community resources.
  • Oral Histories of Teachers  (Ongoing) This research project aims to build a national oral history archive of New Zealand teachers' work.
  • Educational Charities  (Ongoing) This research project aims to examine the extent to which educational charities fulfil their objectives and provide a public benefit, and to document their networks of influence.

Current Projects

Project Title: Research Medal 2012 - Supervisor - Teaching and Learning in community newspapers

This study is part of a larger research project on teaching and learning in everyday activities and settings in the city of Palmerston North This contributing project involves search, retrieval and storage of articles from local community newspaper microfiche archives in the City Library. The purpose of the search is to permit analysis the frequency and variety of non-formal and informal teaching and learning activities offered in the community, and how these may have changed across several decades. As a result of the analysis it should also be possible to map the availability of these activities in different localities within the city and to make preliminary assessments of the 'learning capital' that may exist at the neighbourhood level.
