Associate Professor Janeen Lamb - Nat Sch of Education (Faculty of Education and Arts)
Fully accredited supervisor - Can supervise as principal supervisor
Janeen Lamb is Coordinator, Higher Degree Research in the Faculty of Education and Arts.
Janeen completed her PhD in 2010, focusing on the role leadership plays when introducing new curriculum in mathematics education. Thesis title: Implementing mandated curriculum reform: Sources of support for teacher meaning making.
Her research has grown from a focus on the school principal to include the professional learning community as a way to lead educational change. Within mathematics education, her research has included:
- mathematical modelling across primary and secondary mathematics,
- mental computation in the early years;
- numeracy across the curriculum;
- statistics and probability in the secondary school; and
- the principal as instructional leader while integrating digital resources into the mathematics curriculum.
Janeen also researches the role of the principal as faith leader. Her research has generated more than 60 outputs across her funded projects.
In addition to her own research, Janeen has supervised six higher degree research students to completion as principal supervisor. She is currently supervising seven higher degree research students.
Beyond her coordination of higher degree research, her own research and supervision, Janeen completed a Master of Tertiary Education (Management ) in 2017 at the University of Melbourne.
