'Seeing' Learning

We investigate ways to exploit visualities to experience, observe, and augment experiential learning(s) and ways of learning ‘to be’ in diverse educational settings.  


Who we are

  • Dr Melanie Nash (School of Education)
  • Dr Grant Cooper (School of Education)
  • Dr Li Ping Thong (School of Design)
  • Hayden Park PhD student (School of Education)
  • Alexandra Johnston PhD student (School of Education)

What we do

In this bubble we explore the use of virtual and augmented reality to simulate presence in school and early childhood settings, to interact with a virtual baby and to go beyond the walls of the classroom. We also focus on ‘learning to look’ in order to develop skills of observation, description and interpretation, which enable us to see learning and construct meaning in varied contexts.

Who are our partners

  • Association for Visual Pedagogies
