Janeen Lamb is Director of Higher Degree Research. Her own research in the last 20 years has focused on issues related to educational leadership and mathematics education. This has included teaching and learning of mental computation in the early years; numeracy across the curriculum; statistics and probability in the secondary school and sources of support for the professional learning community as a way to make meaning of educational change in mathematics education.
