We are interested in using Learning Analytics to optimise student learning. Learning Analytics measure and process student data collected from Moodle (the University Learning Management System). This PhD project will investigate how these data allow us to personalise feedback to chemistry students, which is particularly difficult in large student cohorts. The project will evaluate how students respond to personalised feedback and develop methods to better support students throughout their degree programme.

We aim to prepare undergraduate students to tackle global challenges confronting modern society. This PhD project will design and implement context-based learning activities at the university level to encourage students to make links between chemistry, the environment, and society. The project will use systems thinking to develop novel methods to help students to learn about fundamental chemistry concepts and relate the concepts to their everyday life, in particular changing their behaviour and actions that impact the environment.

Applicants must have completed, or be soon to complete, a relevant chemistry degree (Honours/Master degree) at a high level (HD1 or 2.1 minimum or equivalent).

Excellent written and verbal communication skills, a strong interest in chemistry education (higher education level), as well as the ability to work independently and in a team environment are essential. Evidence of data analysis and interpretation skills and experience with statistical analysis is desirable.
