Dr Joy Wallace

Senior Lecturer, School of Humanities and Social Sciences

A literary scholar, critic and researcher, Joy views the development of libraries, and the related field of Information Studies, as areas of great strength at Charles Sturt University, and ones which offer a wealth of resources to assist the researcher and teacher. Dr Wallace teaches literacy subjects that the English discipline at CSU provides to trainee school teachers, many of whom have not chosen English, and who are often of a generation moving further and further away from books. She is keen to explore how teacher librarians are dealing with this challenge, as a way of improving her own pedagogy – and pedagogical research into English standards – so she can better equip her teacher trainee students.
