My academic career is shaped by leadership of curriculum and educational change linked to an established program of innovative qualitative research.  Over a forty year career in education I have upheld an enduring commitment to equity and social justice. My experience in education has been equally shared between the university sector and the school system.   My research interests centre on leading change through a focus on curriculum theory, curriculum leadership, practitioner inquiry and qualitative research methodology, notably visual methods. My research program is developed from questions of equity, participation and agency and shows sustained links to schools, school systems and the professional work of early career teachers.  I have contributed more than 100 publications that include book chapters, refereed journal articles, reports, professional books and other publications in a range of high standing international and national peer review publications and conference proceedings. My service contribution in additional to my leadership roles in higher education include the organisation of academic colloquia series; national president of the Australian Association for Research in Education (2013-14), an active member of major professional associations and conference committees; reviewing for international research panel reviews and promotion committees; editor of Teaching Education; membership of international editorial boards and regular reviewing for a range of social science journals in education, teaching and the arts.
