Dr Paul Chandler
Paul Chandler's teaching and research extends across digital pedagogies, science education and education studies. Until recently, he was Research Fellow in Multimodal Pedagogy at the University of New England and (concurrently) the ICT Pedagogy Officer at the University of Melbourne within the "Teaching Teachers for the Future" project. Prior to that, Paul taught in independant schools in Melbourne, specializing in Science, ICT and teacher professional learning. At school level, he has been an ICT manager, co-ordinator of reporting, professional development leader, and initiator of numerous initiatives in digital pedagogies. Paul's doctoral work explored the relationship between teacher’s thinking and their implementation of ICT-related pedagogies, and he remains facinated by 'teacher thinking' perspectives on pedagogical change and how educators interact with new resources and media. Before the internet was available in Victorian schools, Paul developed a highly innovative approach to provide electronic mail to teachers and students, and his Master's thesis considered teacher's use of pre-internet electronic resource sharing networks. Para-professionally, he has active interests in local history, genealogy and Christian education.

Paul has extensive school-based experience as a subject co-ordinator, ICT innovations leader, professional development co-ordinator and in timetabling/curriculum management, in addition to teaching ICT, science and maths. He has recently taught in the science education programs at both Deakin University (primary) and Melbourne University (secondary) programs, and was the 'ICT Pedagogy Officer' for the "Teaching Teachers for the Future" project (http://www.ttf.edu.au) at Melbourne University.
Paul worked with Prof Len Unsworth and Dr Angela Thomas in the ARC Linkage Project "Teaching effective 3D authoring in the middle school years: multimedia grammatical design and multimedia authoring pedagogy” (LP0883563). Multimodal authoring pedagogy, together with the construction and analysis of multimodal text from the perspective of systemic functional linguistics, is his major current field of investigation and publication.
