Research Projects in Progress
The SEALLS (Student Engagement and Achievement in Large Lecture Settings) Project
- I am the Principle Investigator (PI) this Project which includes a highly collaborative team of academic and professional staff across the Faculty of Education and Social Work (FoESW) at the University of Auckland....
The Achieving with Integrity (AwI) Project
- I am the PI of this Project which I started in the United States with David Wangaard in 2007. We are always in various stages of the research and publication cycle and have several programs and manuscripts in production.
- I am a Co-PI on this Project which includes inter-Faculty collaboration of scholars from the School of Learning Development and Professional Practice in the FoESW and the School of Psychology in the Faculty of Science. We just completed a third year of data collection in longitudinal study that explores changes in teacher candidates' implicit association
- I am the Deputy Project Leader of this multi-disciplinary, inter-institutional collaboration between scholars at AUT and the UOA. The project aims at increase student engagement and retention in tertiary STEM subjects through of use of puzzles, paradoxes, provocations and sophisms (PPPS). We are currently seeking funding to develop and evaluate digital resources for PPPS-based instruction via an extended-term mixed-methods study.
