Ep 67: Dr. Loraine McKay and Dr. Sue Monk on Being Early-career Researchers

On this episode, Katie is joined by two guests:

Dr. Loraine McKay is a lecturer at Griffith University in Queensland, Australia, where she teaches in preservice and post graduate teacher education programs. She is currently program advisor in the Bachelor of Education program. Her teaching areas include inclusive education and literacy intervention. Loraine’s research interests align strongly with her passion for teaching. She was a classroom teacher for over twenty years in the primary education sector before leaving teaching to complete her doctoral studies. The topic for her PhD focused on the sociocultural factors that influence preservice teachers’ beliefs and practice during the transition into the profession, an area of interest drawn from her role as a beginning teacher mentor and university tutor. Her current research centers on developing teacher-identity and teachers’ capacity to work with students with learning difficulties. Loraine is interested in exploring the use of arts-based practices to explore the affective dimension of teaching and engagement in learning.

Dr. Sue Monk is a lecturer in the School of Education and Professional Studies at Griffith University, Queensland, Australia. Her PhD, in the areas of ethnomusicology and Latin-American studies, investigated the relationship between the artist and the state in Cuba, specifically the role of the music. She works with qualitative methodologies and draws on critical interculturalism and postcolonial frameworks. In transferring her research to the education field, she currently teaches in the field of sociology of education. Her current research investigates 'funds of knowledge' (Moll et al) amongst Latin American communities in her city, specifically amongst mothers and daughters. Her book The Politics of Differentiation in Education was published by Routledge in October 2016.

Segment 1: Early-career Researchers [00:00-16:27]

Currently, Sam works on the National Center on Accessible Educational Materials (AEM) focusing on postsecondary and workforce take up of AEM. Sam is also a co-principal investigator for a National Science Foundation study on stereotype threat and its impact on inquiry science pedagogy in middle schools. The project will create a prototype web-based professional development course to help middle-school science teachers understand stereotype threat and use UDL to reduce its effects in everyday instruction. Sam’s primary research focus is on the use of networked technology to support peer-to-peer knowledge transfer and she has conducted design-based research in both professional development and formal education settings. Before joining CAST, Sam was a Senior Associate and Distance Educator at the Center for Social Innovation, leading the company’s online learning strategy.  Sam holds a BA from McGill University and a masters degree and doctorate in education from Harvard.
