Dr Denise Beutel’s background is in science/maths teaching with over 20 years teaching experience in secondary schools in both the state and private sectors. During that time, she taught junior science, senior chemistry, senior multi-strand science and junior mathematics and was responsible for developing and implementing science/maths transdisciplinary units in the middle years of schooling. Her lecturing experiences since commencing at QUT in 2005 include: The Middle Years of Schooling, Teaching Strategies, Trans-disciplinary Science-Technology Education, and Teaching and Learning Studies. Her interest in the middle years of schooling originally stemmed from research undertaken in her doctoral thesis and her involvement with the introduction of a middle school at her last teaching position. Currently, she is the course mentor for the Graduate Diploma in Education (Middle Years).
Dr Beutel has recently completed a research study into the nature of pedagogic teacher-student interactions in the middle years of schooling and she is currently involved in research relating to the development and implementation of induction programs for beginning teachers and mentoring programs for experienced teachers. Her research interests also include pedagogy in the middle years of schooling and school reform.
