Biography

Fabiane Ramos has extensive experience in the higher education and adult education sectors with a particular interest in supporting CALD (culturally and linguistically diverse) students. She has a background in Education, Applied Linguistics and Gender Studies and has attained her PhD from the University of Queensland with a project on the educational experiences of refugee-background students in relation to concepts of academic success in Australia.

Fabiane’s research is interdisciplinary with an emphasis on the application of feminist theories and methodologies to qualitative research projects. Her current work focuses on pathways, transition, and higher-education education with a special interest on widening participation and pedagogical practices. Another focus is on reflective types of inquiry expressed through alternative and creative academic writing styles. In this strand of her work, Fabiane experiments with philosophical themes grounded on self-reflexivity and a poetic approach to research.

In some of her latest projects, Fabiane has explored the application of the concepts wonder and engaged pedagogy to higher education pedagogical praxis. As part of this work, she has been awarded an international visiting scholar grant to collaborate with academics at UFSC (Federal University of Santa Catarina), Brazil, in a project titled A repository of intercultural education practices.

Fabiane has an emerging body of publications with papers featured in top tier academic outlets such as the Australian Educational Researcher, Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, Pedagogy Culture and Society, and Feminist Review as well as international edited collections. She is currently taking part in the University of Southern Queensland Early Career Researcher Development Program. Through this program, Fabiane has received funding to undertake a scoping project titled Examining academic preparation programs for secondary students as opportunities to support underrepresented students’ transitions to higher education in Australia.

Fabiane’s areas of research interest include but are not limited to:

• Pathways, transition, and higher-education pedagogy

• Feminist and decolonial theories and methodologies
