Kerrie Mackey-Smith (PhD) is a senior lecturer in English and literacy at Flinders University in the (primary – junior primary) Teacher Education program. She coordinates and teaches in undergraduate and postgraduate courses, as well as supervises in Higher Degree by Research programs. She had a previous career to education in media (I.e. working for Channel 9 in Melbourne and Darwin).
In her childhood, Kerrie lived in remote areas of northern Australia and this lived experience still influences choices she makes for her work today. Kerrie brings a strong commitment to working towards educational justice for marginalised groups of young people. Where possible in her teaching and research she aims to marry her expertise in digital literacies together with an understanding of the importance of authentic community-connected learning experiences for children.
