I obtained my BSc(Hons) degree from the University of Melbourne, and a PhD in psychology from Monash University. I have also completed a Graduate Certificate in Academic Practice (GCAP) at Monash University. I formerly taught psychology for 11 years at the university level as a tutor, lecturer, and unit coordinator. But for the past three years have worked as an educational designer, primarily assisting university lecturers and unit coordinators to enhance their online teaching and learning activities. My professional interests include eLearning, gamification, educational technology, and the promotion of active learning.
