Senior Lecturer, College of Arts & Education

Dr Greg Neal is a senior lecturer in the College of Education at Victoria University. Greg's doctoral study was entitled Learning with Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the middle-years: Student voices. It investigated the ways in which ICT can be used to engage middle-years' students in their learning and used a mixed-methods research approach to complete the study.

Greg has continued to work with teachers to explore the ways in which ICT can be in integrated into learning contexts to engage students and improve learning outcomes.

As the course advisor of the Master of Teaching (Primary) at Victoria University, it is Greg's passion to ensure we develop effective teachers prepared for 21st century learners. A global collaboration with Concord University (West Virginia) staff and students is one initiative that assists to develop the preservice teachers to become global educators.
