Susie Kung


Susie Kung has been in education since 1980 and in teacher education for over 26 years. She has been teaching on the Bachelor of Education programme at Manukau Institute of Technology (MIT) since 2006. She is a Senior Lecturer attached to the School of Education and is also the Academic Lead overseeing the provision of pastoral care and also the retention and success of four programmes in the School of Education. She has substantial experience in the field both in Malaysia and New Zealand.

Susie’s passion for teacher education includes her research on effective tertiary teaching-learning spaces and, more recently, blended teaching-learning environments through COVID-19 times, teacher identity and teacher motivation, preparing student teachers for a fast-changing, diverse world and a reconsideration of teacher education as a holistic endeavour. Case study and narrative approaches to research are her methodologies of choice but she has a special interest in the Appreciative Inquiry approach to research and has used this methodology for a number of her research projects. She is currently investigating the role of teacher identity, teacher motivation and the teacher’s perception of advocacy in the teaching role.
