Teaching

Kate's teaching philosophy is highly intentional and evidence-based. She has a strong focus on active learning and as such uses a wide range of technologies and learning activities in her classrooms. Kate  takes a developmental and critical approach to teaching and learning. She believes that students construct new knowledge for themselves, and with others, by having prior assumptions challenged, and through the integration of new evidence which has been actively and critically analysed by students. Kate also has a strong focus on student belonging, engagement, and inclusion. She has teaching expertise in the following areas:

  • Child development
  • Early childhood music for development, teaching and learning
  • Research design and methodology
  • Inclusion and early intervention approaches
