Dr Sally Louise Humphrey - Nat Sch of Education (Faculty of Education and Arts)

Fully accredited supervisor - Can supervise as principal supervisor


I joined ACU in 2010 after completing a post-doctoral research fellowship at the University of Sydney, under the supervision of Professor James Martin. This research project focussed on the development of online resources within an embedded academic literacy support program at Hong Kong City University. Prior to this I completed a PhD, exploring the persuasive strategies of adolescent social activists beyond schooling. I have also worked and researched extensively in secondary and primary school literacy practices, focussing on the linguistic resources needed for access to high stakes knowledge in the disciplines. I have co-written a number of textbooks for pre and in-service teachers to support them in developing the knowledge of language for literacy and learning.
