About Dr Sandy Nicoll

Dr Sandy Nicoll’s PhD was conferred in 2019 on the topic: How do primary preservice teachers learn to engage students in learning during professional experience?

After teaching in Higher Education since 2007, and a classroom teacher for 3 decades Dr Sandy estimates she has walked alongside over 15,000 pre-service teachers as a tutor and lecturer. She loves the idea of engaging others so we can empower them to create and elevate. These experiences inspired her in 2021 to become the maker for The New Brew Podcast with curators Hema, Jase, Jarryd, Kyle, Rowan and Tash.
