Sue Dockett Sue is Professor in Early Childhood Education, Charles Sturt University. Prior to entering tertiary education, Sue worked as an educator in prior-to-school settings as well as the early years of school. Since 1988, Sue has been involved in early childhood teacher education and research. Much of her research agenda is focused on educational transitions, particularly transitions to school and the expectations, experiences and perceptions of all involved. With Bob Perry, Sue has published widely, both nationally and internationally in the area of transition to school. Integral to the investigations of educational transitions is a commitment to incorporating children’s perspectives. Much of Sue’s current collaborative work is focused on refining and critiquing these approaches as well as conceptual and theoretical analysis of what is meant by engaging children and young people’s voices within research agendas.
