Associate Professor
University of Technology Sydney

I am interested in understanding how innovative pedagogy enhances teaching and learning in classrooms. I have been deeply involved in supporting teachers to be the best they can possibly be - this might be through preservice teacher education, the delivery of professional learning, or at 'their elbow' in practitioner research projects in classrooms. I was a teacher in K-12 schools for many years and continue my passion for the profession in my work in universities.

I work in the School of International Studies and Education in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at UTS. T: @janehunter01
