Melbourne Graduate School of Education, Australia, Postdoctoral Research Fellow

The Melbourne Graduate School of Education (MGSE) is at the forefront of innovation in education, working with partners in schools, early childhood settings, communities, government and beyond, constantly seeking new and improved ways to support Australia's education system.

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow who will have primary responsibility for undertaking research in a research program of the Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education (Melbourne CSHE) (Learning Analytics for Personalised Feedback and Improved Task Design to Support Student Learning in STEM). This is a three-year Fellowship, provided by the Melbourne Graduate School of Education (MGSE), aimed at attracting excellent early career researchers who are able to show evidence of outstanding potential as an academic researcher and leader.

The Fellowship requires the candidate to undertake a substantial new research project that investigates how learning analytics can be used to optimise the learning design of digital environments for enhanced learning in STEM education. Sophisticated analyses of student interactions in digital environments can provide educators with a better understanding of students’ learning behaviour, particularly of problem-solving and scientific inquiry processes in STEM education. This knowledge can potentially be used to develop new forms of student feedback, and provide staff with feedback on the effective design of learning tasks. The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will determine the most appropriate methods, techniques, and algorithms for providing feedback in digital learning environments in higher education.
