Claire Wyatt-Smith is the Director of the Institute for Learning Sciences and Teacher Education at the Australian Catholic University and Professor of Educational Assessment and Literacy.
Her research addresses standards and the use of professional judgements to improve learning and the role of digital technologies in educational assessment and evaluation. She is currently leading a large scale study of reform in initial teacher education involving 14 Australian Higher Education Institutes as partners in the study spanning six states and territories. She is also undertaking major studies into the teaching of writing, large scale standardised testing and the impact of new technologies on classroom learning.
Current work includes a review of NAPLAN involving Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and the Australian Capital Territory. Other work includes research on digital learning assessment, big data and learning analytics. Outcomes from this include the UNESCO paper on digital learning assessment, big data and learning analytics https://unesdoc.unesco.org/ark:/48223/pf0000370940.
Her work has attracted funding from the Australian Research Council (Discovery and Linkage Schemes), and governments at national and state levels, as well as international educational agencies. This funding has supported her extensive publications in leading international journals and publishing houses. She is the Foundation Editor of two book series with Springer Publishing in the fields of educational assessment and teacher education: Teacher Education, Learning Innovation and Accountability (2018) and The Enabling Power of Assessment (2014).

Professor Gavin Turrell is a Social Epidemiologist whose research focuses on the Social Determinants of Health and Health Inequities. In 2000, Gavin established the Australian Health Inequities Research Program (AHIRP). AHIRPs vision is "A socioeconomically just Australian society, without health inequity", and its mission is "To conduct research that is directed at improving the environmental, social, and economic conditions that give rise to good health, and to counter those conditions that generate poor health". His research is primarily population-based and much of it examines how the neighbourhood environment interacts with individual-level factors to influence health and related behaviours and risk factors. Gavin is a Chief Investigator on an NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence in Healthy, Liveable, and Equitable Communities, where he leading a research program examining whether the neighbourhood built environment is causally related to health and well-being. Gavin and his collaborators, including Research Fellows, PhD and Masters students, are investigating topics such as ethnicity and health, Indigenous status and diabetic foot disease, neighbourhood disadvantage and physical function, socioeconomic position and physical activity, neighbourhood environment and walking, transport and health, and neighbourhoods and mental health (among others). Gavin's work is increasingly focusing on ways to reduce health inequities through urban design, public policy, health policy, health promotion, and other intervention strategies.

Mary MacKillop Institute for Health Research
I am interested in the impact of the built environment on health outcomes across the lifespan. Current projects examine associations between greenspace and mental health in older adults, and the impact of the built environment on children's active transport and household travel patterns.
My PhD (Deakin, 2009) examined associations between neighbourhood safety and children's physical activity. My Post-doctoral research at Deakin University examined the impact of the built and social environment on children's active transport and independent mobility.
