Dr Sarah Healy
Melbourne Postdoctoral Fellow
Melbourne Graduate School of Education
As Melbourne Postdoctoral Fellow, Sarah works with social listening tools and sentiment analysis to chart shifts in the affective dispositions toward children’s engagement with digital technologies in a-formal learning environments (such as the home). Prior to the award of this Fellowship, Sarah was a Lecturer in Artistic and Creative Education at the Melbourne Graduate School of Education and a Research Fellow within the Deakin University node of the Centre of Excellence for Digital Childhoods.
Sarah's research and teaching, which primarily occurs on the unceded lands of the Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri people, sits at the intersection of studio pedagogies, a-formal learning environments, critical affect studies, digital methods and the posthumanities. A focus on practice is at the heart of Sarah’s teaching and research endeavours, as is a critical and creative approach to ‘doing da(r)ta’ in a more-than-human world.
