Professor Margaret Robertson Professor of Education, Education Melb

As Professor in Education in the Faculty of Education at La Trobe University my role brings me into contact with students and educational contexts throughout the Australian state of Victoria, and from many international locations. Academic and curriculum responsibilities include supervision and teaching of post-graduate research students (including large numbers of international students), and contributions to post-graduate and pre-service programs related to geographical education, pedagogical and curriculum issues.

My research interests include geographical and environmental education and associated visual-spatial literacies; uses of digital technologies as pedagogical tools, and innovative developments in learning cognition and social media. Mobile technologies, geospatial technologies and social connectivity are current interests. A particular focus is on 'student voice' and young people's views and visions of their future lifestyles. Cross-cultural comparisons in young people's thinking and learning engagement processes is a current research interest.
