Supervisors with this research interest

  • Faculty of Education and Arts

  • Institute for Learning Sciences & Teacher Education

  • Professor Vincent Geiger

    Vince Geiger is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Education at ACU. Vince taught mathematics and held school leadership positions before joining ACU in 2005. His research interests lie in the teaching and learning of mathematics and its applications, with a particular focus on the use of digital tools as enablers of mathematical understanding. The approach he takes to research is guided my socio-cultural principles of learning in exploring how both individuals and collectives of learners acquire mathematical ideas and learn to apply them.
    Vincea??s research program has attracted in excess of $1 million in external funding including an ARC Discovery award (2012-2014) and more recently an ARC DECRA (2015-2017). In addition, he is leader of the ACU team within a DEEWR OLT LELT project (Opening real science: Authentic mathematics and science learning for Australia, 2013-2016). Vince is a recipient of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasiaa??s Practical Implications Award for a research paper with the potential for direct application in school classrooms. He is the author of 81refereed publications that address the interests of both research and professional audiences and is currently Associate Editor of the Mathematics Education Research Journal. Vince supervises higher degree research students in science and mathematics education.
    Vince has always maintained a close link with the mathematics teaching profession and has held the positions of President of the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers and Chair of the National Education Forum. He was a member of the Queensland Studies Authoritya??s (QSA) Subject Advisory Committee and State Assessment Panel (1996-2005) and a member of the QSAa??s Learning Area Reference Committee (Mathematics) (2009-2014). His tertiary teaching expertise has been recognised through an ALTC Citation for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning in 2009.

  • Associate Professor Janeen Lamb

    Janeen Lamb is Director of Higher Degree Research. Her own research in the last 20 years has focused on issues related to educational leadership and mathematics education. This has included teaching and learning of mental computation in the early years; numeracy across the curriculum; statistics and probability in the secondary school and sources of support for the professional learning community as a way to make meaning of educational change in mathematics education.

  • Dr Jill Brown

    My expertise is in mathematics education. My teaching includes mathematics education for Early Childhood, Primary, and Secondary pre-service and in-service teacher education. I have a particular interest researching the teaching, learning and assessing of real world applications and mathematical modelling, functions in technology-rich environments, affordances, zone theory, and anything that furthers our understanding of teaching and leaning mathematics

  • Dr Dung Tran

    Dr Dung Tran is a senior lecturer in the Faculty of Arts & Education at Australian Catholic University.

    Prior to joining ACU, he worked at North Carolina State University, USA for more than two years developing and researching Massive Open Online Courses for Educators (MOOC-Eds). He also worked as Victoria University, Melbourne for two years as a lecturer. He is a native of Hue city, Vietnam, graduated from the University of Missouri, Columbia, USA with a PhD in Mathematics Education and a PhD Minor in Statistics. He also earned a Master of Education in Mathematics Education and a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics in Vietnam.

    His research focuses on designing and implementing curricular materials to improve students' quantitative literacy, abilities to use mathematics and statistics to be functional and critical in the home, civic, and work life. This agenda is evident in two related foci: (a) investigating the impact of inclusion of mathematical modelling and applications into curriculum on teaching and learning and (b) documenting ways to develop statistical literacy for students and teachers. He has extensive experience in curriculum analysis and development at the middle and high school levels, conducting sizeable clinical interviews with elementary children, and analysing a diversity of both quantitative and qualitative data.
