Associate Professor Alison Kearney

Associate Professor

Institute of Education

I am an Associate Professor in the Institute of Education at Massey University. I  have always been interested in equity and issues of social justice, and this stems from growing up with a brother with an intellectual disability who was institutionalised from an early age. I am particularly interested in the reasons why some students are excluded and marginalised from and within school.

Prior to taking up my position at Massey University, I was a primary school teacher, a Guidance and Learning Teacher and a Teacher of Special Needs. I currently teach in the areas of inclusive education and educational psychology and am the national co-coordinator of the Resource Teacher: Learning and Behaviour (RTLB) Training Programme. I am also the coordinator of the following programmes:

  • Post Graduate Diploma in Specialist Teaching (Learning & Behaviour)
  • Post Graduate Diploma (Teaching & Learning)
  • M.Ed (Teaching & Learning)
  • M. Specialist Teaching
  • Diploma in Education Support Workers

I am involved in the provision of short online courses to Resource Teachers: Learning and Behaviour and Special Needs Coordinators. These courses focus on professional learning opportunities that allow participants to collaborate, create personal agency and embed their learning within their professional contexts.

I have supervised numerous Masters and PhD students finding this aspect of my position particularly satisfying. 

I am an Associate Professor in the Institute of Education at Massey University. I teach into the M.Ed and PG Dip/M. Specialist Teaching Programmes. My research focuses on issues associated with equity in education, and in particular, the exclusion and marginalisation of disabled students from and within school. I am the editor of Kairaranga a New Zealand Education Journal and am a member of the editorial panel of the International Journal of Inclusive Education. I have supervised both Masters and PhD students.

Research Expertise

Research Interests

My major research interests are in the area of Inclusive education as a vehicle for equity. I am particularly interested in the factors that act to marginalise and exclude students from and within school and how this exclusion can be overcome. Chidrens' rights form an important part of this agenda.

A secondary research strand focuses on learners exercising personal agency and taking charge of their learning. 

Research Opportunities

  • Childrens Rights  (01/05/2016) As part of the new Equity Through Education Research Centre, a research strand focused childrens' rights is proposed.
