Dr Jacqueline Dohaney
Guest Speaker
Jacqueline is interested in how students learn and how we teach science at university. She trained as a petrologist and volcanologist at Carleton University (BSc, Hons), the University of British Columbia (MSc), and in the mining sector (Canada and Australia). During her masters, she discovered a love for teaching and later pursued a doctorate in geoscience education at the University of Canterbury (New Zealand). She is currently a STEM Education Lecturer at Swinburne University of Technology where she teaches planetary geology and astrobiology. Her research is focused on improving science learning in universities, bringing authentic science practices into the classroom, and making STEM more inclusive to underrepresented learners.
Catherine Phillips
Guest Speaker
Cat is a fierce advocate for women in Sport and STEM. She is a professional football player, currently captaining St Kilda Football Club's AFLW team. She's also the Commercial Operations Manager at ExxonMobil where she's committed to inclusivity and empowering others.
Charlie Kidd
Professional Learning Leader
Charlie began her teaching career at a private girls’ school in Melbourne, teaching VCE Biology, General Science and Physical Education. During that time, she completed her Master of Education through research examining the barriers teachers face when adopting new pedagogical approaches and the belief systems that inform practice.
A defining moment of her career was the teaching stint she conducted in Vanuatu, where she was able to gain a first hand understanding of the varied contexts, educational goals and parameters that communities across the globe teach within.
Charlie is passionate about the power education has to drive positive change in the world, and believes empowering teachers sits at the heart of this. She believes it is a privilege to apply the learnings from her Master research to support teachers in bettering their practice to improve student outcomes and foster a love of science in younger generations.
