Training and Workshops

Service offered


As a Professor of Education, a recipient of many highly competitive grants (such at Australian Research Council grants) as well as industry grants, and a highly accomplished author of research, I bring a wealth of experience to share with interested parties. Sharing the outcomes of research along with the practicalities of planning and undertaking research is a keen area of interest.  My extensive experience in academia, industry and schools brings with it a wide base for discussion and sharing.

I offer training and workshops for:

Researchers, including early career researchers and research students

  • Qualitative research methods

  • Analysing data

  • Writing research

  • Getting published

  • Grant writing

Teachers and educators in the school system


  • Innovative practices in mathematics education such as open-ended questions

  • The ‘big five’ ideas in maths

  • Creating a great lesson

  • Number sense and number lines

Industry (particularly the swim industry) 


  • The benefits of swimming for under 5s – socially, academically, transitioning to school

  • Language development

  • Mathematical development

  • Physical development

  • What makes for good lessons in early years swimming

  • How swim schools can build the learning of their students

I have been lucky enough to work with Professor Robyn Jorgensen on a number of projects over the past 10 years. In my current role, I manage a drowning prevention program for children under 5 called Kids Alive - do the five. This community service program delivers free water safety materials to Early Learning centres and Swim Schools throughout Australia. With Robyn's guidance we have been able to create several resources and ensure the services that we provide are of the highest possible standard and meet best practice guidelines. Most recently Robyn has guided us through the conceptual phase acting as a chair on an advisory committee, conducted research into the rollout and usage of the package and collated the results into an independent evaluation to help us guide our future direction. I have no hesitation providing a testimonial for Professor Robyn Jorgensen because without her our program would not be as successful. She is an internationally renowned researcher and wonderful human being.
