LEARNING AND TEACHING

‘Context matters’, this is what I tell all students. All learning and teaching experiences take place within a context that will influence and guide the choices teachers make and the actions they take. I too, am a teacher; I need to take context into account when I lead curriculum design and select pedagogical approaches.

When I design and deliver learning experiences, I am uncompromising in the modelling of passion and purpose in teaching for learning. I endeavour to ensure that all learning experiences provide opportunities for all, including myself, to examine from a range of perspectives, our beliefs, attitudes, reasons, intentions, reactions and intellectual processing. We learn together about the intersection and complexity learning and teaching provides to accumulate discipline pedagogical content knowledge.

I believe that my leadership in teaching for learning enabled my identification in the top 10% of student evaluations of teachers at Griffith University during 2010 and 2011. This was recognised by my achieving 2011 Group Learning and Teaching Citation in the Arts, Education and Law (AEL): For sustained passion, purpose, energy and enthusiasm for learning and teaching of Arts Education courses; 2012 Highly Commended Group Excellence in Teaching Award in the Arts, Education and Law (AEL): Teaching to teach with passion and purpose; 2013 Highly Commended Group Excellence in Teaching Award in the Arts, Education and Law (AEL): Leadership in teaching for learning and learning about teaching and 2016 Highly Commended Griffith Award for Excellence in Teaching: priority area of leadership.

SERVICE

Activity within professional organisations is important to the professional growth of other professionals within my field either by researching, publishing and presenting new information or serving on committees to help implement changes within the organisation. My curriculum vitae reveals the extensive experience I have received in pedagogical theory and professional practice through teaching arts education related subjects at state and private schools, and undergraduate and postgraduate arts education courses in South Africa and Australia. It also reveals the many leadership roles I have played in education and the wider community and the involvement I have with both National and International organisations. I am committed to teaching, research and community and corporate citizenship, and more importantly I am committed to how these three entities effectively intersect to support my career. Teaching and learning are not one off experiences- they are life-long experiences achieved through facilitating engaging, motivating and intellectually stimulating learning experiences (teaching for learning) and through the scholarship of learning and teaching (learning about teaching).

My achievements in leading learning and teaching demonstrate my alignment to the Principles to promote excellence in learning and teaching practices at Griffith University 1 integrating the experience of teaching with the scholarship of research and producing scholarly products out of those activities and leading wide scale curriculum renewal and reform. I believe that the constructivist approach coalesced with my approach to leading teaching for learning and learning about teaching affords a unique and meaningful contribution to the mission of the University.
