About Me

Professor Alison Elliott has extensive research, teaching and policy experience in higher education and specifically in teacher education programs that prepare educators for teaching roles in early childhood contexts and schools. She has expert knowledge of curriculum design, planning, implementation and assessment processes, learning and teaching in the school and higher education context, professional development for teachers, family-school connectedness and engagement, and policy issues in early childhood education. Alison's work has a strong focus on promoting optimum learning and teaching environments for young children and other students in regional contexts- in partnership with their families and communities.

Alison has had diverse professional experiences in education contexts in Australia and internationally. She has held a range of academic and leadership positions in the university sector and is author of many publications and reports focusing on early childhood and school education, digital technologies and learning, and various policy and curriculum issues. Alison has been a member of and/or contributed to a range of state- based and national decision making and policy making and review groups around Australia. Alison's 20 + year term as the editor of the leading professional publication for early childhood educators Every Child concluded recently as did her four year term on the inaugural Board of the Australian Children’s Educational and Care Quality Authority.

Alison’s recent research and policy work has been mainly in regional and remote communities focusing on strengthening professional learning and practice for teachers and other educators.

I welcome expressions of interest from prospective research students who seek to develop a research project in areas of interest that align with the above.
