    Biography
    Vince Geiger is a professor of mathematics education within the Institute for Learning Sciences and Teacher Education (ILSTE), Australian Catholic University. He is the Leader of the STEM Education: Design and Growth Across the Disciplines program within ILSTE, an interdisciplinary research space focused on the enabling and transformative role of mathematics within the STEM disciplines and other areas of human endeavour. His work is driven by awareness that the capacity to know and use mathematics confidently is important for an individual's career prospects and their empowerment as informed citizens. This awareness has inspired over 100 peer reviewed research publications that address the interests of both research and professional audiences.

    Vince joined ACU in 2005 after a successful 22 year career as a secondary school teacher of mathematics and science. Over that time he held national positions such as President of the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers and Chair of the National Education Forum. It was in these roles that he became aware of the "big" problems in mathematics education that needed to be addressed through research. His research interests have developed from this point to include: the teaching and learning of mathematics and its applications ??? numeracy and mathematical modeling; the use of digital tools as enablers of mathematical understanding; STEM literacy and capability; and teacher professional learning. The approach he takes to research is underpinned by socio-cultural principles of learning/teaching, usually realized through mixed methods designs.

    Vince's research has been supported by $4 million of external competitive funding, including leadership of two ARC Discovery projects and one DECRA. Other recent projects include: 2018-2020 - Principals as STEM Leaders (Department of Education and Training); 2018-2023 - Numeracy Expert Group for the implementation of the 2nd cycle of PIAAC (OECD); 2015-2017 - Opening Real Science (OLT); 2018-2020 ??? Review of the PIAAC numeracy assessment framework (OECD); and 2015-2016 - Building an evidence base for national best practice in mathematics education (Office of the Chief Scientist). He is a past Associate Editor of the Mathematics Education Research Journal, a current member of the Editorial Board for International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education and a member of the Executive Committee of the International Community of Teachers of Mathematical Modeling and Applications.

    The excellence of his research was recognised by a Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia Research Award in 2017. His work was further recognised by selection as the Giovanni Prodi Guest Professorship at Wurzburg University in 2018/2019. While his focus is now on research, Vince has always maintained a close link with the mathematics teaching profession His tertiary teaching expertise has been recognised through an ALTC Citation for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning in 2009.

    Vince supervises higher degree research students in science and mathematics education.

  • Nat Sch of Education

  • 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.

  • Dr Duncan Nulty

    Dr Duncan D Nulty is nationally and internationally recognised for his expertise on: curriculum and assessment design; evaluation of teaching, courses and other educational programs; institutional policy and practice in these areas; and, academic standards including consensus moderation.

    He has a significant and sustained record of academic leadership, research, and community service with a particular emphasis on institutional change in relation to strategic issues of institution-wide impact and significance.

    Dr Nulty has authored and co-authored many high quality refereed publications in highly ranked journals, and book chapters with reputable international publishers.

    He has led, co-lead, been a team member, or active contributor in 10 teaching and learning development grants including two nationally funded projects in Australia, and one international project funded in the UK. These focus on assessment practice and policy, and the development of consensus moderation practices which support comprehensive quality assurance of assessment standards.

    Duncan has a demonstrable and sustained record of high standards and innovation in teaching and course development, including entirely online courses.

    Duncan has supervised or co-supervised to completion six students of Research Higher Degrees.
