About the Author
Dr Eva Dobozy is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Education at Curtin University in Perth. With more than 20 years experience in education, first as an early childhood/ primary teacher and then as a university lecturer and researcher, Eva is producing high-quality educational research and designing, supervising and teaching various educational psychology courses. Her interests and research work are concerned with the issue of effective pedagogical modelling in face-to-face, blended and online learning environments through the design of learning-centric and highly interactive curricula. She is working as part of a learning design group on the design and implementation of transdisciplinary pedagogical templates. Her research spans the intersection between learning theory, learning design, technology-enhanced learning and teacher professional development. Eva has a substantial research and publishing record and has received numerous invitations to present her work as a keynote speaker at international conferences. In addition, she has been the managing or guest editor for a number of educational periodicals and is currently an elected member and vice-president of the Western Australian Institute for Educational Research, and the Australian representative and executive member at the International Council for Educational Media, which has its head office in Vienna, Austria. Eva also serves as an elected member on the Curtin University Teaching and Learning Committee.
Professor Brendan Bartlett is Chair Professor of Education at the Australian Catholic University and Program Director at the Learning Sciences Institute Australia. He is a Gellibrand Scholar, UNICEF Fellow, King Mongkut Medallist, award holder of the Rotary International Certificate for Significant Achievement in Education and on the Australian Learning and Teaching Council for services to education. Brendan’s most recent ARC Linkage research has reported on success in retrieval of youth whose early attempts to transition from school to work, training or higher education had failed. Currently, he is supported by an ARC Discovery Grant (with Clarence Ng and Claire Wyatt-Smith) in studying avoidance issues in children’s literacy development and leads a team reporting on Queensland’s alternative cducation programs. For years he has sought to develop, through research, his understanding of language and thought and of how people identify the ‘big’ ideas in texts they encounter or create — and how they communicate, remember and make sense of such ideas. There have been significant developments in education and industry in what Brendan has found thus far, with a metalinguistic skill he has named and theorised as ‘top-level structuring’.
Dr Michael C Nagel is an Associate Professor in human development and learning within the School of Education at the University of the Sunshine Coast. A prolific author, he has written a number of journal articles and books related to theories of learning and neurological development in children, and is a contributor to a number of textbooks used in undergraduate and postgraduate education courses throughout Australia. Nominated as Australian Lecturer of the Year each year since 2010, Michael is also a member of the prestigious International Neuropsychological Society and the Queensland Director of the Australian Council on Children and the Media, and is a feature writer for the Child series of magazines, which offers parenting advice to more than one million Australian readers. When he is not busy professionally, he spends his time learning the important lessons of adolescence and life from his own children, Madeline and Harrison.
Dr Rebecca Spooner-Lane is a qualified psychologist and is employed as a Lecturer in educational psychology and educational counselling in the Faculty of Education at the Queensland University of Technology. Rebecca coordinates courses at both an undergraduate and Master’s level, including QUT’s Stepping Out Conference — a fourth-year capstone unit that prepares pre-service teachers for a successful transition into teaching. Her research interests centre on supporting the development of quality teachers including mentoring, values-based education and intercultural competence.
Dr Amina Youssef-Shalala is a Lecturer at the Faculty of Education and Arts at the Australian Catholic University in Strathfield, Sydney. She is a secondary school teacher in human society and its environment, economics and business studies. Awarded the University Medal in Education for her research in general problem solving at the University of New South Wales, Amina has a keen interest in investigating the use of problem-solving strategies within the secondary school classroom across different learning areas. Her research has found that when novice learners are presented with an unfamiliar problem, using a general problemsolving strategy such as means-ends analysis can be effective. As an early career researcher, Amina has published in the Journal of Experimental Psychology: Applied and Applied Cognitive Psychology. Academics in the field of cognitive science regard her research to be cutting edge, which has the potential to have a large impact on teaching and learning.
