Teaching

Jo Lampert is an Associate Professor  in the School of Teacher Education and Leadership.
In 2008, together with Dr. Bruce Burnett, Jo co-developed the award winning National Exceptional Teachers for Disadvantaged Schools program (NETDS) which creates a pathway for high quality pre-service teachers to be better prepared for teaching roles within low SES schools. By working closely with Education Queensland and partner low SES schools, the program channels these exceptional pre-service teachers into those low SES schools where they will have the greatest impact. In 2013, NETDS was expanded with the support of the Origin Foundation and Social Ventures Australia and in 2015 the Vincent Fairfax Foundation and Eureka Benevolent Foundation contributed to further expansion. NETDS is led by QUT, and now offered at 7 universities across Australia.
Jo has taught across Sociology Units and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies at QUT since 2002. Her teaching leadership in embedding Indigenous perspectives is demonstrated in her teaching, research and service engagement.
In 2016 she received a Senior Higher Education Academy Fellowship (SHEA).
