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).

  • Nat Sch of Education

  • Dr Lisl Fenwick

    Lisl's research focuses on equity in education. She is interested in how curriculum design, methods of assessment, differentiation practices can either support or limit opportunities to learn and achieve for students from low-SES and Indigenous backgrounds. Lisl's reasearch also investigates how teachers' knowledge about genre and language can support teaching and learning practices that result in greater equity in education. Lisl uses a range of theoretical approaches in her research to help explain how curriculum, assessment and literacy practices can limit or extend opportunities to learn. She particularly draws on the theoretical work of Pierre Bourdieu and Basil Bernstein.

  • Dr Mellita Jones

    Mellita's research is focused on effective pedagogies for teaching, learning and assessment, particularly in the areas of teacher education, and science education for a more just and equitable world. Mellita's research is predominantly qualitative with some work in mixed methods as well. She is particularly concerned with the use of critical reflective practice, and this informs her work with practising and preservice teachers in these areas.
