Lisa Moody worked as a specialist English teacher in high schools between 2005 and 2015 and has been working and researching in tertiary settings since 2011. During this time, Lisa specialised in the fields of literacy and critical literacy. As a subject coordinator within James Cook University’s Domestic Pathways Program, Lisa specialises in teaching students in enabling spaces about writing, reading, and researching for the purposes of tertiary study. Lisa completed a postgraduate qualification in research methods, including a dissertation focussing on transition and pedagogy within enabling and sub-bachelor spaces.

Lisa is engaged in the ongoing development of an “Integrated Curriculum Alignment Framework” (ICAF) in collaboration with a pathways colleague. This framework is orientated towards mediating the intersectional complexities faced by regional sub-degree students, with a view to promoting academic resilience and inter-subject knowledge transfer. A podcast discussing the application of this framework to subject development during the Covid-19 pandemic is available via the ACHRC website. Additional discussion regarding this framework can be found in "Scholars in Covid Times" (Cornell University Press).
