My main area of teaching is qualitative research methods. I currently teach Introduction to Qualitative Research in Health and an advanced elective, Qualitative Analysis and Writing in Health. Both units are part of the Master of Public Health but can be taken by any postgraduate coursework students, HDR students, or via (enrolled) short course or professional development. I’ve been teaching versions of these two units since 2010 – originally as part of the Master of Qualitative Health Research program that I ran for 6 years.
I’ve previously taught advanced elective units in qualitative methodologies and writing a research proposal, and delivered guest lectures in qualitative research, creative methodologies, and community-based participatory research for several postgraduate programs.
I have provided professional training in qualitative research for research institutes (eg The George Institute), community organisations (eg NSW Users & AIDS Association) and as part of capacity building for community-based participatory research in Australia and Cambodia.
I teach qualitative research methods and qualitative research ethics into Foundations of Health Research, a core postgraduate unit in the Faculty Medicine and Health. I deliver an annual session for the Intensive Research Ethics Course for HRECs (run by Monash University) and have provided one-off qualitative ethics training for the University of Sydney Human Research Ethics Committee, the Community Mental Health Drug and Alcohol Research Network, and the National HIV Research Advisory Committee, Papua New Guinea.
Drawing on my research expertise, I’ve been invited to lecture on LGBTQ health for postgraduate programs in nursing, pharmacy, and medicine. I have also delivered professional training for the Australian Medical Students Association (on inclusive healthcare), the University of Sydney Research Portfolio (on inclusive language), and the Relationships Australia Human Research Ethics Committee (on ethical research with LGBTIQ people).
