Dr Alice Brown is a distinguished academic practitioner, specialising in Early Childhood Education (ECE) health, wellbeing, and pedagogy, with nearly two decades experience as a full-time lecturer, within the School of Education, at the University of Southern Queensland (Senior Lecturer since 2015). Her exemplary teaching and scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) has been recognised through awards, such as the 2020 USQ Excellence Award for Advancing Student Success, the 2020 USQ Excellence in Teaching Award for Online learning Innovation, Head of School (HoS) and Dean commendations, and reflected through consistently high SETS data (averaging 4.5/5 - 2017-2022).
Dr Alice Brown has a strong track record of successful SoTL fellowships and grants, leading and working in multi-disciplinary teams (including 3 grants since 2015). She has established a national and emerging international reputation in SoTL focussed on innovative strategies to support online student engagement in higher education (HE); including the development of the world’s first ‘nudge protocol’ for nudging low or non-engaged students; and advancing the Online Engagement Framework (OEF) for HE.
Dr Alice Brown has lead and mentored others in course design and learning strategies that heighten student engagement, at a national and international level, by drawing on my expertise in SoTL to advance, inform, and shape knowledge, and T&L practice. She leverages digital tools and technology (such as smart phones, zoom, and course learning analytics) in ways that are student-focussed, equitable, and enhance student engagement and satisfaction Her leadership in scholarship is dualistic and encompasses: i) leadership in scholarship that shapes T&L and ‘evidence of outputs’ related to scholarship research.
Dr Alice Brown exemplifies an extensive track record for publishing high quality output. She is an expert in the field of methodological considerations for engaging in research with families in ways that are ethical, empathetic, and respectful (including a sole-authored research book, see Brown, 2019). She has a track record for attracting internal and external research income and leading research teams focussed on the ECE related research projects. She evidences a strong history of leadership in the supervision, development, and training of HDR cohorts, with key strategies being the mentoring of early career supervisors (ECS) and co-publishing with doctoral students.
