Kim Flintoff

Learning is as valuable as loving.


I've taken leadership of two Faculty Learning Engagement Teams in the Centre for Aboriginal Studies and Faculty of Humanities; each with two Learning Engagement Developers, a Learning Technologist and a Learning Media Developer I was working as an eLearning Advisor and had been in that role since 2008 and contributed to several projects and initiatives including the Humanities Flexible Learning Project, Hotseat, iPad Users Group and the 3D MUVE Special Interest Group. During 2010/11 coordinated K-7 Drama and Movement for School of Education. I have taught in the Creative Industries Faculty of the Queensland University of Technology where I was also working on a PhD (Developing a model for Process Drama using networked technologies). Since 2006 I've been working in WA again, and taught in Contemporary Performance and Education programs at Edith Cowan University. I've developed expert knowledge in the field of practice-led research and have authored an online teaching module on the topic for the Australian Technology Network of Universities. I am a peer reviewer for the Australasian Journal of Educational Technology and MERLOT Journal of Online Learning and Teaching. Previously, I taught Drama at Rossmoyne SHS and John Forrest SHS, lectured in Drama Education at ECU. I have extensive background in theatre production. While currently examining the implications of technology and virtual domains in educational Drama, I'm also interested in NLP, brain-based and accelerated learning applications, student-centered and co-operative learning. I'm co-founder and former chair of Class Act Theatre (Theatre-in-Education) and founder and present chair of SHY (Seen and Heard Youth). I was Director of Technology for Drama Australia and was the first Technology Officer of DramaWest (1996-2001). I've been co-chair of the IDEA (International Drama/Theatre and Education Association) SIG for Drama and New Media since 2001 (Bergen 2001, Ottawa 2004, Hong Kong 2007).
