Research interests

Dr Claire Bartlett is a registered teacher and an experienced lecturer in Initial Teacher Education. She has discipline knowledge in the subject areas of English Language and Literacy, Teaching English as an Additional Language and or Dialect (EAL/D) and Professional Experience and has taught these subjects in both undergraduate and postgraduate initial teacher education programs.

Dr Bartlett has a long history of professional engagement. She was a member of the Northern Territory Teacher Registration Board (NTTRB) (2014-2019), a member of the Initial Teacher Education Committee (ITEC) of the NTTRB (2014-2022) and currently holds the position of Chair (2020-). The ITEC is comprised of education leaders from all sectors and provides advice to the NTTRB regarding assessment and accreditation of ITE in the Northern Territory. From 2020-2022 she was a member of the National Association of Directors of Professional Experience which provides leadership and a collective voice in key issues associated with professional experience and reports to the Australian Council for Deans in Education.

Dr Bartlett’s research focuses on the implementation of programs and practices to improve the developmental and educational outcomes of children, particularly First Nations children. Claire employs social research methods to uncover and understand the ways reformers’ beliefs about the program or practice—and the conditions and contexts in which implementation occurs—shapes the process and outcomes. She is an honorary fellow at Melbourne Medical School where she provides advice about scaling up the implementation of the Ages and Stages Questionnaire-Talking About Raising Aboriginal Kids (ASQ-TRAK).

Dr Bartlett’s current research projects focus on the ways that digital technologies can support both in-service and pre-service teacher professional learning, a vital component of implementation. She is the lead researcher of the innovative Charles Darwin University funded project that examines the impact of simulated teaching on the preparation of pre-service teachers for professional experience. She is also a member the following research teams: The contribution of online initial teacher education and the career readiness of graduate teachers (Curtin University), and Rural and remote teacher education placements and employment (University of Adelaide).

Dr Bartlett is available to supervise PhD students in her areas of expertise.
