Two merit-based PhD scholarships are available for the holders to participate in a research project entitled ‘Using Immersive Virtual Reality to Enhance Students’ Science Visualisation’ (funded by the Australian Research Council Discovery Project scheme, DP190100160).
The project aims to investigate the potential of advanced visualisation technology—immersive virtual reality—as a collaborative learning environment to support students to explore their ideas and learn core chemistry concepts, molecular structures and functions. The PhD students will be supervised by a team of experienced science education researchers (Dr Mihye Won, Professor David F. Treagust, Associate Professor Mauro Mocerino, and Associate Professor Kok-Sing Tang) at Curtin University, Perth, Australia. They will also have opportunities to interact with partner investigators, Professor Chin-Chung Tsai (National Taiwan Normal University) and Professor Roy Tasker (Purdue University).
