Dr E_Marcia Johnson
Research Associate, Centre for Tertiary Teaching & Learning
Qualifications: PhD, University of Toronto, Canada
I have a PhD in educational computing from the University of Toronto and have taught both computers in education and applied linguistics in Canada, Japan, and New Zealand. Originally from Canada, I joined Student Learning as its Director in January 2008 and then was appointed Director, to the Centre for Tertiary Teaching and Learning (CeTTL) in October 2012. I and the CeTTL team have introduced a number of cross-disciplinary, cohort-based initiatives to improve the student experience of learning. In particular the Doctoral Writing Conversation programme has facilitated the development of a range of strategies to help thesis students become successful writers. I retired from CeTTL in 2021 but continue to contribute to university life as a Research Associate.
I have overall responsibility for the planning and teaching of the weekly Doctoral Writing Conversation for PhD and research Masters students. I have supervised (to completion) a number of doctoral students whose research focuses on the integration of language and technology into educational setting.
My current research includes doctoral supervision and writing, tertiary level eLearning, technology use in language teaching, and the scholarship of teaching and learning.
