Jo-Anne Ferreira


I am currently Deputy Head of School and Director, Teaching and Learning, in the School of Education at Southern Cross University. Prior to this I was convenor of the Master of Environment (Education for Sustainability) program within Griffith Sciences at Griffith University. I am an active member of the Australian Association for environmental education and a past convenor of the World Environmental Education Congress and immediate past editor of the Australian Journal of Environmental Education. My research is in the sociology of education, with a special interest in post-structuralist theories of identity, embodiment and power, and environmental and sustainability education. Recent research has focused on systems-based change in teacher education and on the strategies and techniques utilized by environmental and sustainability educators to empower learners to become environmental citizens.
