Conceptualising what is considered effective teaching in a digital world has been a major part of my research. Since the completion of my PhD in 2007, I have investigated the integration of digital technologies through the relationship between epistemological and pedagogical beliefs. I have identified the process involved in shifting instructional practices for effective engagement with digital literacies. Throughout my research into professional development I have explored the tension between face-to-face, online and self-generating professional learning, conceptualising how teachers learn online through social networks and developed a validated instrument for assessment of and curriculum development towards improving student’s self-regulation. These foundations have led to current research in the areas of online teaching and online learning design with consideration of both the instructor and the student. Due to COVID19 I have been working with schools on designing quality teaching for remote learning and have been excited by the opportunities for flexible anytime learning this has afforded our students. How we move to a more blended approaches to schooling is now an area of research and co-development.
