Educational leader and researcher


Dr. Angela Fitzgerald is an Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of Southern Queensland and a Principal of a small rural secondary school in the state of Victoria, which is located in the south-eastern corner of Australia. She is internationally recognised for her work as a primary science/STEM education researcher, which has broadly focused on improving the confidence and competence of pre- and in-service teachers in this field. Equally, she is recognised as a motivational leader who seeks to promote the professional practice of her colleagues through relevant and meaningful professional learning activities. Angela is an innovative qualitative researcher who use video ethnography and documentary filmmaking as data collection process and story telling tools.


While at Faber, I will be working on a manuscript. I have a contract with Springer to complete this book by the end of 2022. This product is a result of a nationwide project focused on exploring what primary science education looks like and how it is enacted in Australian initial teacher education programs. The major contribution of this book is to provide an evidence-based response to how ‘classroom-readiness’ translates into the preparation of future teachers of science. This contemporary understanding will be juxtapositioned against international narratives with the intention to shift perceptions of primary science education from a deficit model.
