In addition to his PhD research, Michael has conducted research into:

  • the negotiation of professional knowledge in teachers’ Communities of Practice;
  • the distribution of TPACK in team teaching relationships;
  • the risks of using social networking sites;
  • teaching and learning in virtual worlds;
  • augmented reality in out-of-classroom settings;
  • and the use of video feedback.

These projects have resulted in a range of book chapters, peer reviewed journal articles and conference presentations including a Highly Commended Paper Award from the Australian Council for Computers in Education (ACCE) and the biennial ACEC conference in 2010. Prior to joining Monash University in 2013 Michael was a senior teacher for 15 years in secondary schools. He is also a Management Committee member and Journal Editor for the teachers’ association Digital Learning and Teaching Victoria (DLTV) and his work enhancing the professional learning of ICT teachers in Victoria was recognised in December 2013 with an Outstanding Professional Service Award from the Council of Professional Teaching Associations of Victoria.

Michael’s teaching was recognised in 2014 by the Pro-Vice Chancellor (Learning and Teaching), Professor Darrell Evans, who described Michael’s teaching as “outstanding” and was quantified as being in the top 5.6% of teaching evaluations in the University with 149 out of 150 students rating Michael’s ‘overall teaching’ as ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’ reported as part of the University’s formal student survey (source: Monash University Teaching Evaluation Reports 2013-2014).

Research interests:

Michael is a regular contributor to national and international conferences. Most recently, Michael presented 3 research papers at ACEC2014 in Adelaide as well as delivering the closing keynote address.
