Jo-Anne Reid is Professor of Education in the Faculty of Arts and Education, and the Presiding Officer of Academic Senate at Charles Sturt University. She began her career teaching Secondary English, worked as a curriculum consultant for beginning teachers in the WA Department of Education, and has had a long-standing involvement in teacher education. Since her doctoral work focused on teacher programming as a means for constituting both school and teaching subjects, her interest in the potential of post-structuralist theories of practice for rethinking education and diversity in post-modern society has informed her research and teaching. She has won a range of National Competitive Grants over her career, several of which have focused on English teaching, and teacher education, overseas-born and educated teachers, the career pathways of Indigenous teachers, as well as on literacy and the environment and rural teacher education. She has been co-editor of the Asia-Pacific Journal of Teacher Education and is a past president of both the Australian Teacher Education Association [ATEA] and the Australian Association for Research in Education [AARE], and completed her term as Vice President of the World Association of Research in Education [WERA] in 2012.
She has published a range of books and articles on curriculum, classroom practice and research, both alone and in collaboration with others. Among her book publications are Small Group Learning in the Classroom (1982), Shaping Up Nicely: The Formation of Schoolgirls and Schoolboys in the First Month of School (1994), 100 Children Go to School (1998) and 100 children turn 10 (2002), Managing (Small Group) Learning (2002) and Literacies in Place (2007).
