Gillian joined Flinders university in 2000 as a problem-based learning tutor/trainer in the graduate-entry medical program. Since then, her interest in how we learn, and in particular active learning pedagogies, led her to undertake a doctorate investigating students’ control of their informal learning needs using smart IT during formal active learning sessions. 

Currently, she teaches in the Prideaux Discipline of Clinical education and is working at CILT in the Flinders University Academy developing diploma programmes for international students and assisting in designing international foundation studies, and in facilitating the equity of access to higher education for interested students.

Her research interests include how students learn in the ubiquitous ICT environment and the changing role of educators to scaffold and support students learning.
