I have been teaching and researching in education since 1994 when I began my art education career, graduating from the College of Fine Arts, University of New South Wales. Considering my time in education, I am relatively new to InSEA, having been a member and councillor in state-based and national art education communities in Australia.
I came to InSEA looking for international connections and a professional learning community who were interested in praxis, research, practice-based education and exploring global issues in the classroom. I have found my people and look forward to serving colleagues in the South East Asia and Pacific for another 2 years as World Councillor.
I am on the InSEA Research and Praxis Committee and this year launched the InSEA webinar series in International Arts Education week and serve on the InSEA Publications International Expert Review Panel.
Aims: As a re-elected World Councillor in the South East Asia and Pacific with colleagues Rob Hayden (Philippines) and Kim Snepvangers (Sydney, Australia) I hope to continue to build relationships with institutions, schools, teachers, artists and students to widen and deepen the mission of InSEA. I aim to:
Promote InSEA and grow the member-base in our region.
Support colleagues in our region to share practice, praxis and research at InSEA webinars, seminars, regional and world congress meetings.
Invite and mentor colleagues in our region to disseminate practice, praxis and research in and about art education through publishing with InSEA Publications.
