Personal profile

Biography

Dr Kate de Bruin is a researcher in inclusion and disability in the Faculty of Education at Monash University. She has taught in secondary school and higher education for two decades. In her academic work she has played a central role in developing the Inclusive Education courses in both the Masters of Teaching as well as the Masters of Education programmes at Monash University.

 

Kate’s research focuses on inclusive education in policy and practice, examining system-level and school-level practices that are supported by evidence, and that promote quality and equity for all students, with specific attention to students with a disability. She has worked with Commonwealth, State, and Catholic Education Departments on projects such as:

  • the Nationally Consistent Collection of Data for Students with Disabilities Moderation Resource,
  • the Victorian Inclusion Support Programme,
  • Models of School Support, and
  • Tier Two Literacy Interventions in Australian Schools.

Kate regularly provides professional learning to school teachers, and she writes for both academics as well as readers from the general public. She sits on the Academic Advisory Board for All Means All: The Australian Alliance for Inclusive Education.

Research interests

Kate's research focuses on schoolwide and classroom practices that support all students to participate, engage and make progress in learning. Her current projects explore differentiated teaching and learning interventions that fit within Tiers 1 and 2 of multi-tiered systems of support.
