Exploring Excellence in Learning and Teaching at ACU
Learning means thinking; teaching means thinking about thinking; Let’s think differently!
Associate Professor Jason Lodge has a long interest in learning and teaching, the science of learning, and the use of technology to enhance learning. This interest and expertise will offer us an especially rich combination if we want to challenge ourselves toward different ways of thinking about learning and teaching, and (more importantly) to think about improved practice. Jason’s interests and expertise are backed by a strong record of research and scholarship which concentrates on the application of the learning sciences to higher education. Specifically, he is interested in the cognitive and emotional factors that influence learning and behaviour and how research findings from the learning sciences can be better used to enhance design for learning, teaching practice and education policy. Jason is also interested in the ways technology is influencing learning, particularly in terms of the impact of technology on the development of professional ways of being, metacognition, critical thinking and expertise.
