Personal profile

Biography

I started my academic career as a university lecturer in the field of cultural and language studies. I worked in schools in Australia while doing my MA and PhD degrees in educational studies at the University of Queensland (UQ). I worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at UQ before becoming a lecturer at Monash University. Having acknowledged that the world is becoming a 'global village', so it is important for peoples with different social and cultural backgrounds to understand and learn from each other, I am interested in doing research on intercultural education, especially on investigating how pedagogies work in different socio-cultural contexts. I have done research on how to bring western pedagogies into non-western classrooms and how to embed non-western cultural and intellectual resources into western curricula. 

My book 'Implementing cross-culture pedagogies - cooperative learning at Confucian heritage cultures' published by Springer in 2014 is a summary of main issues that I did for my postgraduate degrees. I used Activity Theory as a theoretical framework to investigate how educators could make use of strong aspects of various pedagogical perspectives to develop a so-called 'global effective pedagogy' which could work with students with various socio-cultural backgrounds the best. I am also researching international students' employability and how international students use their agency in enhancing their employability.

My main teaching areas are intercultural education, pedagogical practices, globalisation, school-family partnership and research methodology.
