Personal profile

Research interests

I obtained my PhD in the area of reproductive physiology. My work in the Faculty of Health Science and Medicine has led me to research in higher education, both within health professional education and more generally.

My current research interests span multiple areas of interest in higher education.

Major research topics for which I have received funding from the Australian Government Office for Learning and Teaching are graduate employability and postgraduate student experience. For both projects I have led research teams from across Australia to explore perceptions of students, staff and, in the case of graduate employability, employers.

Key outcomes from the projects are available in the form of recommendations for strategies to improve employability and student experience targeted at students, educators, senior university administrators and employers. Further information on both projects and their outcomes is available  http://graduateemployability.com/  and http://postgraduatestudentexperience.com/ 

Other areas of research interest include curriculum development and professional development for academic and clinical educator staff.

Research interests

Within the fields of higher education I have previous and current students who have conducted research in areas of professional development for academic staff, clinical educators and clinicians.

I am interested in projects on these topics, those involving curriculum development and further research to support postgraduate student experience and graduate employability (including the important area of postgraduate employability).
