Four main research tracks

To attain an in-depth picture of the human learning process and its mechanisms. this Institute has planned four main tracks to make substantial contributions nationally and internationally to the field of learning sciences.

  • Science Education or STEM education.
    • Integrating innovative technologies in inter-disciplinary curriculum to promote learners' STEM literacy
    • Teacher training in science inter-disciplinary education
    • Investigating the learning mechanism in science inter-disciplinary education
  • Intelligent Learning Technologies.
    • Development of a virtual reality assisted assessment platform
    • The application of augmented reality in innovative assessment and instruction
    • The application of virtual reality in skill learning
    • Preschooler’s STEAM education and learning process in virtual reality environments
  • Educational Measurement and Big Data.
    • Developing the innovation assessment and cutting edge psychometric technology of the affective, interest and personality inventory tests
    • Developing automatic and efficient smart mode measurement
    • Developing a safe, sophisticated and diverse educational data analysis platform
  • Educational Neuro-Science.
    • Theoretical exploration and pedagogical practice of interdisciplinary learning by cognitive neuroscience technology
    • Cognitive neuroscience of programming learning
    • The application of eye movement in mathematics and science education
    • The effect of acute exercise and medication on inhibitory ability in children with Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
    • Working memory and auditory perception training to improve language learning
