Projects per year
My research has focused on the development and assessment of cognitive and transferable skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, communication and lifelong learning. I have a keen interest in educational development, with research concentrating on the academic attainment of assessment literacy, authentic assessment, constructive alignment, thresholds and standards, and leading change processes in higher education.
In my professional role at Bond University, I support the development of an effective, high-quality curriculum, managed across all programs to maintain assurance of learning, quality and compliance. I am responsible for administering the university curriculum management system, servicing and supporting learning and teaching quality assurance activities and the provision of associated training.
