Dr Lydia Harrell
Lydia joins ConCOVE with approximately a decade of tertiary teaching and research experience in Management and Education, both in the U.K and New Zealand.
In her last role, she was involved in the research and implementation of “the learner capability project” which was an organisation wide initiative in the ITP sector. The role involved promoting the use of the industry backed learner capability framework in the design, delivery and assessment of the courses in the Construction, IT and Business programmes to create work-ready/employable graduates for the respective industries.
Lydia has presented and published papers on models of integrating employability skills into the Vocational Education Curriculum of China and New Zealand. Her doctoral study at the faculty of education, AUT, explored the practices of the Indian secondary school education system and its contradictions with the requirements of a 21st century knowledge worker with the complex skills like problem solving, critical thinking, resilience and accountability.
Lydia is excited to join the ConCOVE research team as it blends well with her own research interests in curriculum innovation, 21st century skills and capabilities for meaningful careers.
