Aryani Tri Wrastari is currently doing her PhD study in the School of Education at the University of Adelaide. She is a lecturer at the School of Psychology, Airlangga University in Surabaya – East Java. Her major of study is in educational psychology, with specialisation in learning, assessment, and research. She graduated her bachelor degree from clinical psychology in School of Psychology at Airlangga University, and continued her master degree in Educational Research, Assessment and Evaluation at Flinders University of South Australia.
Adult Learning Theory has been her biggest concern in research and teaching, as she has conducted numerous research, publications and teaching within related theory. Her master degree research investigated on how teachers in poverty context engaged in professional learning using the theoretical framework of Adult Learning Theory. The research resulted in a range of learning factors that promoted and hindered teacher learning in disadvantaged context. One of the potential factor was religion, yet the research suggested that this factor was not powerful enough to help teachers to engage in a transformative learning, a learning that could bring change their school context.
Her PhD research topic is a continuation from her previous research, exploring how teacher’s religious and spiritual meaning making could bring transformative impact on their pedagogical practices. She will present this topic in the 4th Indonesia Research Day.
Aryani is a mother of a lovely three years old daughter and a wife of a culinary lover husband. Having her family staying with her in Adelaide is the greatest support a student-mother could have, and she is enjoying every single moment of her PhD life as a meaningful spiritual journey.
