Dr. Russ Fox is a Lecturer in applied behaviour analysis at Monash University. He is a trained primary school teacher with experience teaching and working in mainstream primary schools. Russ’ direct teaching experience has predominantly been in alternative education settings, specifically supporting primary and secondary students exhibiting behaviours of concern. He has worked extensively with teachers in a Capacity Building role delivering in-school teacher consultation to improve behaviour support in classrooms. A significant focus of this work was on supporting effective transitions within and to school. Russ was seconded into a Senior Policy role within the Department of Education and Training to develop policy and practical resources to support the reduction and elimination of the use of restrictive practices in schools. His research interests include school-wide positive behaviour supports, multi-tiered systems of support, responsive teacher training, and the sustainability of implementation of evidence-based practices in education.
