Biographical details

Arlene competed a PhD in linguistics at the University of Sydney. Her training as a linguist has informed her teaching and research across a range of areas including academic literacy, organisational communication, learning and teaching, and leadership, and her publications reflect this diversity. She has been a lecturer in linguistics and management in Australian and South-East Asian universities. She is currently a lecturer in student learning and communication development, teaching undergraduate, postgraduate and HDR students across the university in co-curriculum workshops as well as working with faculty teachers to embed support for academic learning and communication in the curriculum. She also provides academic enrichment support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students across the university. Arlene has become increasingly interested in exploring the complexities of embedding cultural competence as a graduate quality into the curriculum and co-curriculum and in investigating the crucial role of students’ (and teachers’) critical self-reflection and communication in this process.

Research interests

  • Academic writing, academic literacy, academic discourse
  • Cultural competence as a graduate quality
  • Critical thinking and critical self-reflection
  • Models of embedding academic language and learning support in the curriculum
  • Decolonisation, Indigenous pedagogies, and social justice

Teaching and supervision

Arlene teaches academic communication in the co-curriculum (Learning Centre central program workshops and in Orientation and Bridging programs), and also teaches on teaching teams and as a guest lecturer in the curriculum.

Current projects

Academic literacy and cultural competence: (Arlene Harvey, Gabrielle Russell-Mundine). This ongoing research project explores how cultural competence is expressed in academic genres and the connections between graduate qualities, culturally competent curriculum design and decolonisation of the curriculum.

An interdisciplinary model and resources for culturally competent service learning in Aboriginal community controlled organisations (Gabrielle Russell-Mundine, Julie Maakrun, Lynette Riley, Juanita Sherwood, Arlene Harvey). This project involves collaboration between two Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations and the University of Sydney to develop service learning opportunities which provide intercultural and interdisciplinary placements for students.

Achieving success: What matters (Bronwyn James, Arlene Harvey). This project uses student voice data and an ethnographic approach to identify those aspects of existing co-curricular academic language and learning support and faculty curriculum support that are effective in supporting first year Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in their academic progression.

Students as researchers: Texts and expectations (Marie Stevenson, Alyson Simpson, Bronwyn James, Arlene Harvey). This project aims to investigate how students can be supported to develop an understanding of their position as active learners and to help them engage successfully and confidently with their university studies.
