Description

Title 
 
Teaching how to learn: Promoting self-regulated learning in STEM classes 
 
Project
 
The project involves the design and implementation of interventions to increase teacher capacity to support active student learning in STEM. The interventions will be based on research in the area of self-regulated learning (SRL) and will take into consideration and address the teachers’ beliefs about learning and teaching. The interventions will take place with pre-service and practicing teachers and will involve participation in a video-based professional learning program. The participants will analyse, score and discuss video examples of STEM classroom environments, including videos from their own classes, in small face-to-face meetings. The professional learning program with practicing teachers will be school based, supported by the school leadership and based on a participatory approach that sets up long-term partnerships between teachers and researchers enabling them to reflect deeply upon their practices, assumptions and beliefs. 
         
Prospective students should have an educational psychology or STEM education background, good communication skills and an interest in student-centred teacher practices. They will need to be capable to act as facilitators in the face-to-face meetings with the teachers under the supervision of more experienced staff. They will be involved in the administration of pretest/posttest and delayed test measures designed to assess the teachers’ beliefs, knowledge and practices as well as the beliefs, knowledge and engagement of their students. They will be required to have or to acquire advanced statistical skills for the analysis of complex data using multilevel modeling techniques. 
 
Research Team 
 
The project will be conducted at the College of Education, Psychology and Social Work and will be facilitated by the Australian Science and Mathematics School. The research team includes researchers in educational psychology and in education and involves a collaboration with the College of Education, University of Melbourne, and international collaborations with the Departments of Psychology and Education at the Universities of Arizona, USA and Frankfurt, Germany.
 
Supervisory Team 
 
Professor Stella Vosniadou Emeritus Professor Michael J. Lawson
 
Benefits
 
A living allowance scholarship will be maintained at the maximum stipend rate of $27, 082 for three years.

Plus PHD Scholarship at the FCIC: Analysis of clinical trial and electronic health record data in advanced breast cancer

he project will involve the utilisation of clinical prediction modelling, disease progression modelling, machine learning and deep learning techniques to develop prognostic tools that allow the presentation of personalised likelihoods of response and adverse effects to medicines used in advanced breast cancer treatment. Such information allows informed decisions to be made. This is particularly important in advanced breast cancers where there are significant consequences to the variability in adverse effect incidences and response to treatments.

This project involves the development of prognostic tools via the analysis of “big data” sourced from clinical trials or from data registries. At present the group has access to individual-patient data (demographic, laboratory and tumour data) from over 10,000 advanced breast cancer patients.

Prospective students require relevant experience and interest in clinical epidemiology, biostatics or pharmacometrics. Additionally, students require good communication skills, and have an interest in improving cancer care

Opening Date: 27-11-2018   Closing Date: 15-01-2019

Plus PHD Scholarship at the FCIC: Facilitating shared decision making in advanced cancers through medicine risk communication

It is hypothesised that effective communication of personalised predictions of expected benefits and harms from medicines used in advanced cancer treatment will improve shared decision making, lead to more informed and empowered patients, and enable better decisions regarding whether to commence and continue medicines.

Our group presently has access to individual-patient data (demographic, laboratory and tumour data) from over 10,000 advanced breast cancer patients. Such data allows the development of prognostic tools that can present personalised likelihood of response and adverse effects to medicines.

Historically high-quality prediction models have rarely been available for more than a single outcome for a single medicine. However improved data collection and data sharing initiatives are allowing validated prognostic models to be developed for multiple outcomes for multiple medicines. Despite this there is very little evidence on the optimal design of prognostic tools or apps for the presentation of both benefit and harms to medicines used in advanced cancers.

The project will involve investigating optimal app designs that facilitate effective and relevant communication of personalised predictions of expected benefits and harms from medicines used in advanced cancer treatment, with a patient centred focus. Prospective students require relevant experience in qualitative research designs (e.g. questionnaire development, focus groups), good communication skills, be clinically orientated and have an interest in improving cancer care. Additionally, students require an interest in clinical epidemiology and / or experience with the R programming language or similar data analysis techniques.
