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 ICT/eEducation and Middle Schooling at graduate level.

My research has looked at innovative practices and changes to teachers’ work. My PhD study is based on an interest in how people’s work is judged formally, by others and by ‘self’. To date I have supervised directed studies and masters theses on student voice, personalised learning, online learning, teachers’ beliefs about ICT, and teacher appraisal.
