Dr Helen Bound
Head/Principal Research Fellow, Centre for Research in Learning, Institute for Adult Learning


Dr Helen Bound has a background in vocational training and education, having coordinated the Bachelor of Adult and Vocational Education at the University of Tasmania.

Dr Kerry Bissaker
Associate Dean (International), School of Education, Flinders University


Dr Kerry Bissaker holds the position of Associate Dean (International) in the School of Education in Flinders University. Her international work in Asia has resulted in two Australia Award Fellowship programmes and the establishment of sustained partnerships with universities, institutes and non-government organisations in Singapore, China, Indonesia and Nepal. The focus of her research is on effective learning processes for both students and teachers and in particular, the role of teachers' professional learning is developing schools as dynamic learning organisations. Her longitudinal doctoral research with the staff of the innovative Australian Science and Mathematics School generated an explanatory model of professional learning that can be used as a self-evaluation tool by other schools and learning organisations. Dr Bissaker has a strong interest in models of professional learning as relevant to organisation’s needs and aspirations. She is particularly interested in Communities of Practice (CoPs) and context-based action research. She was a leader of a CoP in her own institution and has supported a range of other CoP facilitators in their work, particularly through the Australian Government Quality Teacher Project.
