PhD student, Lauren Knussen is continuing our investigation of teacher design practices in her study. She’s particularly interested how technology factors into teachers’ design considerations. She’s looking for early career teachers in NSW to participate in Term 2/3 this year. If you’d like more info, contact her at email@example.com
Shirley presented (on behalf of the team) a synthesis of our work focused on examining higher education teacher design practices – in both a poster (see below) and part of a Learning Design Research in Action Symposium – https://twitter.com/jasonmlodge/status/803075760470704128.

We have completed the final phase of our project – which is focused on the design practices of Primary school teachers.
Between February and July 2016 we recruiting Early Career Teachers spent a spent a day designing a unit of work for Stage 3 NSW syllabus for the Australian Curriculum – English, Mathematics, Science or History.
We are now analysing the data and will post updates here.
A summary of our project is here:
We are commencing the final phase of our project focused on the design practices of Primary school teachers.
Between February and July 2016 we are recruiting Early Career Teachers who:
- are in their first five years of teaching since graduating from their initial teacher education program
- currently teaching or have some experience teaching NSW Stage 3 students (upper Primary)
- located in the Sydney or Illawarra areas
- willing to spend a day designing a unit of work for NSW syllabus for the Australian Curriculum – English, Mathematics, Science or History
