Papers Taught

About Kerry

After qualifying as a primary teacher in Christchurch I taught for 15 years mostly in New Zealand primary settings. I have also worked in eEducation research and development.

Currently I am a senior lecturer in the Faculty of Education and teach undergraduate compulsory papers in professional practice, curriculum and assessment, and optional papers on eEducation and curriculum integration. I also, at times, teach papers on digital learning, research methods, and Middle Schooling at graduate level.

My research has looked at innovative practices and changes to teachers’ work. My PhD study was based on an interest in how people’s work is judged formally, by others and by ‘self’, titled Judging what they do: Formal, Informal and Self Appraisal of New Zealand (Rural) Primary School Principals. To date I have supervised directed studies and masters theses on feedback, enhancing learning in innovative ways (teachers and school leaders), student voice, personalised learning, online learning, teachers’ beliefs about technology use in classrooms, and teacher appraisal.
