Biography

Rebecca is a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Education, Monash University, Australia. She works predominantly with pre-service and in-service science teachers and her research interests include; considering how science teachers and science teacher educators develop pedagogical knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge throughout their career, improving the quality of science teaching to increase student engagement and working with teachers on promoting values in their science teaching in an effort to better understand the development of scientific literacy with students. Rebecca was co-editor of the book, Repositioning Pedagogical Content Knowledge in Teachers’ Knowledge for Teaching Science, a culmination of years of work with international colleagues. Rebecca has worked with other lecturers at Monash to better understand and develop their teaching (School of Mathematics and Faculty of Medicine) and has established and maintained partnerships between the Faculty of Education and many secondary schools in Victoria, and around the world, to provide richer experiences for preservice teachers and their mentor teachers while on placement, and she continues to be inspired by the amazing work that so many teachers do to support students learning. Prior to working at Monash University, Rebecca taught Physics, Science, and Mathematics in secondary schools for many years.
