Associate Professor Scott Bulfin


I’m a senior lecturer in the Faculty of Education at Monash University where I study young people’s use of digital media and the implications this has for English and literacy learning across a range of contexts like school and home (I have a range of other interests – see below).

I teach in the Faculty’s secondary teacher education program, and its honours and masters programs. I’m also currently the Faculty’s Honours Course Leader. I supervise honours, masters and PhD projects and would be happy to speak to potential research students.

Before coming to Monash I was a secondary school English teacher. In addition to my work at Monash, I’m a National Council member for the Australian Association for the Teaching of English (AATE). I have four young children (three sons and a daughter) and live in idyllic Bayswater amongst the factories at the foot of the Dandenongs in Melbourne.
