Dr Jayne Jackson M Ed (hons), Dip T, B Soc Sci

Lecturer in Graduate Diploma Teaching (Primary)

Institute of Education

I began my career in education as a primary teacher.  I have extensive classroom experience and have held school management roles.  I have taught in New Zealand and the USA.  I am committed to all chidlren benefitting from high quality experiences in classrooms.  Moving into initial teacher education has enabled me to be a stand for this principle across a wider field.

My doctoral research reported on collaboration with parents to boost their children's reading.  The parents were coached so that they could design and implement strategies which were aligned to both their child's assessment results and family values.

Supervision and Teaching

Teaching

I am the programme co-ordinator for the Graduate Diploma in Teaching (Primary) at Albany. Within this programme, I teach across a range of literacy and professional papers.

I have supervised a number of M Ed Psych students to complete their Masters theses and publish from their work..  I love supervising motivated graduate students.  My favourite aspects of supervision are co-creating worthwhile and interesting projects and seeing students reflect on their growth and development at the end.  I believe that supervision is a collaborative relationship where all parties are learners and teachers.
