Associate Professor Dr Miriam Tanti lectures in digital technologies and is interested in computing curriculum and methods to integrate technology into teaching practice.
Since joining ACU in 2008, Associate Professor Tanti has prepared both undergraduate and postgraduate students to teach in contemporary learning environments through the meaningful integration of digital technologies. She has also worked with schools and school leaders to develop effective science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) problem- and project-based learning frameworks and action research.
Associate Professor Tanti completed her PhD through the University of Sydney and prior to her role at ACU she taught in secondary schools in technological and applied studies. Her PhD and subsequent research have emphasised developing a slow ontological and philosophical framework that presents a vision for sustainable learning, and she is currently writing a book on this topic.
