About the Project

The area of research is flexible and the project can be designed to suit the interests of the successful candidate. Current and recent research in the group covers areas such as inquiry/industry/context- based laboratory learning, assessment, supporting the transition into university education, developing self-studying strategies, visualization/representation of chemical concepts using virtual reality, science, art and play, inclusive education in chemistry, public perceptions of science and opportunities for informal learning, citizen science and the history of chemistry in Australia. It is anticipated that the project will complement one of these areas.
