Biography

Simone White is Professor and newly appointed, Assistant Dean (International and Engagement) in the Faculty of Education at Queensland University of Technology (QUT). Simone is also the Immediate Past President of the Australian Teacher Education Association. Simone’s publications, research and teaching are focused on the key question of how to best prepare teachers and leaders for diverse communities (both local and global). Simone is one of the founding members of the International Teacher Education Research Alliance (ITERA) project. This project aims to connect internationally, teacher education scholars to ensure teacher education policy and research improves the learning for all students and teachers.

Her current research areas focus on teacher education policy, teacher learning (including teacher education), professional experience and building and maintaining university-school/community partnerships. Simone currently leads an Australian government grant focused on improving the preparation of future teachers to work in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander parents and caregivers. Through her collective work, Simone aims to connect research, policy and practice in ways that bring teachers and school and university based teacher educators together and break down traditional borders between academics, policy makers, communities and practitioners.
