Anne’s research, teaching and engagement work enhances the provision of socially-just education in diverse cultural and linguistic educational settings. She joined Monash University as a Lecturer in 2015. Her teaching interests are in the fields of early childhood education, bi/multilingualism, Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages [TESOL]. Her research employs a qualitative intergenerational longitudinal approach. It explores social and cultural understandings of families and communities, and how they shape and are shaped by educational opportunities.
Anne's research prioritises an interdisciplinary collaborative research approach with other disciplines, universities and industry partners. She has researched in international contexts with partners from universities in the UK, Nordic states and Israel, publishing and presenting conference papers with industry partners in the field of early childhood education.
Anne's research is methodologically innovative in its analysis and presentation of cultural artefacts, journal entries, photographs and audio recorded interviews and focus groups. It is exemplified in a website which she created to share research findings of a qualitative longitudinal intergenerational study on three generations of Australian mothers and daughters.
She is an experienced educator who has taught across the early childhood, schools and higher education sectors. On a professional level, she has been an executive member of the Victorian Association of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (VicTESOL) for the past nine years. She has organised professional learning activities for teachers from the early childhood to adult sectors, initiated a research grant for partnerships between researchers and educators working in the TESOL field, provided consultancy to the Department of Education, Victoria and the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) and is an editor of the journal 'TESOL in Context'.
Anne's work as a teaching practitioner and academic demonstrates her capacity to engage with and fulfil the requirements of educational research and practice within culturally and linguistically diverse contexts in a methodologically innovative yet sensitive way.
