Becky’s connection with the bush comes from a childhood spent in the Djabugay rainforest country of Far North Queensland.
She is the co-deputy chair of AABAT, coming from an outdoor education background and having completed a Grad Dip Ed in primary teaching and a BSc (Hons) in psychology. She has particular interest in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives, curriculum development and using digital data to shape staff practice in a field environment.
Becky’s approach as a practitioner was founded on the power of and potential for autonomy, leadership and responsibility in young people. She is also interested in the influence of transformative mastery experiences (such as outdoor programs) on a range of self-efficacy beliefs.
