My profile

I started my career as primary school teacher. After traveling and working overseas in the oil industry for three years, I returned to Australia and resumed my teaching work in Darwin. There I moved into English as a Second Language (ESL) Teaching with primary school children and then moved into working with adults at the migrant education center. I continued my ESL work for twelve years, working with high school students and adults in a variety of locations from Cairns to Kooralbyn. During my time in Darwin I became interested in ways in which technology could support teaching and learning and in the early 90's I moved into educational design at Central Queensland University. In 1999 I moved to the University of Queensland. I continue my work with technology and remain active in designing, developing, implementing and researching information and communications technology applications in higher education. I am currently working as a senior research fellow for DEHub.
