Biography

Catherine Doherty came to teacher education with teaching experience in adult literacy, migrant English, tertiary preparation and community education settings, and policy and curriculum experience in the TAFE sector. Her doctorate examined how cultural identities were produced and performed in online internationalised higher education.

 She has since conducted research into the oracy demands in university pedagogy and assessment; curriculum and pedagogy for international students in Australian universities; the International Baccalaureate as a curriculum of choice in Australian schools; and the educational strategies of mobile Australian Defence Force families.

Her current projects investigate:  how professional families reconcile career opportunities and educational plans in the context of school choice policies; and the moral order in TAFE and school contexts for students now retained till 17 years of age.
