As a lecturer working with pre-service teachers in Edith Cowan University’s School of Education, his students recently acknowledged him for excellence in teaching and learning.

In 2023, Drew applied for a Churchill Fellowship to investigate how Artificial Intelligence (AI) can enhance teacher effectiveness, seeking to address Australian educational challenges, including teacher shortages and educational equity in remote areas.

His research is focused on understanding how AI can enable personalised learning and bridge the educational gap in underserved communities. The findings of Drew’s project will provide valuable insights and system-level recommendations that will contribute to solving critical challenges in the Australian education landscape.
