I am a Senior Lecturer in Health Professions Education with roles in both the Flinders Doctor of Medicine (MD) program and the Prideaux Discipline of Clinical Education.
In the MD, I coordinate the Professional Development and Learning Portfolio and Learning Coach initiative. In the Prideaux Discipline of Clinical Education, I teach into the Master of Clinical Education, supervise HDR students on a range of health professions education topics, and conduct my own educational research. I have experience in conducting qualitative research using case study methodology, and scoping reviews of the literature.
I have a background in secondary education and have taught in pre-service teacher education, medical education, and health professions education.
I am passionate about supporting students and educators through learning and teaching, and contributing to research to improve health professions education practices.
