Biographical details

Rachel is Senior Lecturer in Research Methodology, Educational Assessment & Evaluation. As such she has broad interests across educational evidence, policy and practice. She has a particular interest in early childhood education and she has recently published a book on Emotional Development, co-authored with her father. She also has an particular interest in trends in educational participation and standards.

Currently Rachel teaches child development and learning theory for the Masters in Teaching - Early Childhood. Rachel also coordinates and teaches research methodology and programme evaluation courses in the faculty, mostly to postgraduate masters and PhD students; and she teaches educational measurement and assessment in various units of study. Previously Rachel has taught various units on educational psychology, human development, curriculum and evaluation, and special education.

Rachel has degrees in psychology, audiology, teaching, research methods and higher education and completed her doctoral study in 2002 in education and child development as a scholarship holder at Oxford University.

Rachel is passionate about research and enjoys teaching students who are keen make discoveries through research. With expertise in both qualitative and quantitative research methods she is particularly interested in encouraging students to pursue mixed-methods research (using both qualitative and quantitative approaches). Her research methods classes are informal and interactive, with a strong focus on examining and critiquing published research articles. Her statistics classes are friendly to 'math-phobics'.

Rachel's own research spans across educational sectors - from early childhood to higher education. The common element is a focus on student experiences and outcomes. She has worked on large longitudinal studies of children (including for her PhD). Her current interests include: the use of assessment to promote learning; and the application of research evidence and theory across educational sectors. Rachel is particularly motivated to research issues which impact upon equity and social justice.

Her interest in research methods is matched by her enthusiasm to see research produce meaningful and positive change in educational and social policy. She has experience in developing and providing in-service, professional learning, programs to effect school improvement. She is a regular contributor to media discussion on education and also sits on various educational advisory committees.
