Vilma lectures in ICT in the Bachelor of Education and Master of Teaching programs. In recent years, she has systematically redesigned core technology units to capture some of the essential qualities of knowledge required by teachers for technology integration in their teaching (Mishra and Koehler, 2006). She has also systematically targeted change in ICT units of study by enabling pre-service teachers to achieve and demonstrate competence in the effective and innovative uses of ICT in education. Through her work, she hopes to improve student learning, through embedding ICT in education curriculum, pedagogies, assessment, and professional experience.
Prior to her appointment at the University of Sydney, Vilma was Senior Curriculum Officer for Primary Education at the NSW Board of Studies. She is a former primary school teacher with a broad range of leadership experience in primary education and professional learning. She is currently completing her PhD studies at Macquarie University. Vilma’s doctoral research investigates curriculum development processes and the role of stakeholders.
Vilma'srecent research experience has involved using formative evaluation in the design and development of web-based learning resources, and investigating the impact of the new ICT curriculum on pre-service teachers’ technical, pedagogical and content knowledge (TPACK). While at the NSW Board of Studies her research involved two state wide consultation processes with a range of key stakeholder groups. She has worked on the development of the Primary Curriculum Foundation Statements (2005), responding to the Eltis Review in 2004, the Mathematics K-6 syllabus support documents, and the review of primary curriculum syllabuses in 2003.
