Dr Rachel Perry

Research Specialist, The Evidence Institute. Association of Independent Schools NSW

Rachel has a wide range of experience across schools, academia and government. She is particularly passionate about adopting an interdisciplinary approach, and this has remained at the heart of her work across education, and the arts and culture sector. She is an advocate for adopting an evidence-based approach to the design and development of all initiatives, including more recent work exploring the future of education, the role of creativity, and the impact of connected, interactive technology in education and the arts. Rachel is excited about her current role in the Evidence Institute at the Association of Independent Schools NSW where she is able to support educators as they continue to break down the ‘virtual partition’ between learning spaces and build global connectedness.
