Personal profile

Personal profile

Dr Noella Mackenzie is a Senior Lecturer in Literacy Studies at Charles Sturt University, Australia.  Noella is an experienced literacy educator and researcher. Her career began in schools teaching children from 5 to 12 years. Noella spent 13 years as a literacy specialist working with teachers in literacy early intervention and special education. Noella’s research has largely focused on teachers and the learning and teaching of writing. Noella’s current research focuses on: writing development in the early years in Australia and Finland; students working above standard in literacy and numeracy; and the vexed issue of handwriting and keyboarding in the current era. In recent times she has worked with the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority and developed resources for families and educators.  Her research is informed by her ongoing work with classroom teachers and undergraduate and postgraduate university students and has been published in research journals (e.g. Australasian Journal of Early Childhood, Australian Educational Researcher, Australian Journal of Language and Literacy) and professional journals (e.g. Practical Literacy and Belonging).
