About Professor Anderson's research

Vivienne is Dean of the University of Otago College of Education, and a former teacher. She is passionate about the right of all children and young people to access quality education, and the power for education to change lives for the better.

Vivienne’s research sits at the policy-practice interface, exploring questions relating to educational equity and access, educational mobility, and education pathways. She collaborates with colleagues in a range of educational contexts, including schools, universities and vocational education; and health professional programmes. Vivienne’s research has been funded by Ako Aotearoa, the Ministry of Education, UNESCO and the New Zealand Dental Association.

Vivienne has supervised postgraduate students conducting educational research in Cambodia, Japan, Fiji and Malaysia as well as Aotearoa. Her recent research utilises arts-based, multilingual methods to explore refugee-background young people’s experiences navigating education. This has led to ongoing engagement with policymakers and practitioners working across education, immigration and resettlement.

This lecture will be followed with light refreshments, tea, coffee and juice.


This event will be livestreamed from 5:25pm, Tuesday, 13 August.
