Profile

As an educator at Unitec since 2002,  Her time at Unitec piqued her interest in practice based education and educational theory. As a result she embarked on a journey of life-long learning culminating with her completion of a Master of Education.

Angela is now involved in teaching across all major programmes in the Department of Natural Sciences, with a focus on practical placements and student support. In particular she provides pedagogical leadership through her role as co-ordinator of courses in which students gain academic skills. These skills are designed to facilitate achievement in Unitec's unique 'real world' environment and beyond, as students continue to learn and adapt in their working lives.

Research interests include: Understanding transition pedagogy: how well do students develop and utilise scholarship skills within their first year of tertiary study.
Experience of the Department's learning management system (Moodle) through the student voice.
