Professional vision and video type: A comparison between third-person, first-person and 360-degree videos

Quantitative empirical Master's thesis (videos available, require further data collection). Students who are interested should have a basic grasp of statistics and data analysis and be willing to write their thesis in English. Please contact Dr. Yizhen Huang for further information.

Teachers’ professional vision is “the ability to notice and interpret significant features in a classroom”, an essential prerequisite of effective instruction. Viewing classroom recordings from the third-person perspective is a traditional way of training for such professional vision. Yet, the potential benefits of viewing the classroom from the teacher's perspective (first-person perspective) is insufficiently investigated. This project will explore the differences in professional vision (e.g., noticed class events, interpretations, evaluations) generated from watching third-person, first-person and 360-degree videos.

Through teachers' eyes: Eye movement during different instructional activities

Quantitative empirical Master's thesis (data available). Students who are interested should have a basic grasp of statistics and data analysis and be willing to write their thesis in English. Please contact Dr. Yizhen Huang for further information.

Teaching is a cognitively demanding activity that necessitates skilled attention allocation in complicated settings. Eye movement reveals the underlying cognitive process of the teacher and provides up new avenues for understanding instructional practice. The present project aims to investigate what the eye movement pattern looks like while the teacher performs various instructional activities such as lectures, whole class discussion, small group discussion, and seat-work.

Teacher training in virtual reality (VR)

Quantitative empirical Master's thesis (data available). Students who are interested should have a basic grasp of statistics and data analysis and be willing to write their thesis in English. Please contact Dr. Yizhen Huang for further information.

The VR environment has long been used in professional training within various fields. VR has been considered ideal for bridging the gap between abstract theory and practical teaching skills, providing feedback with vivid examples, and relieving performance stress by ensuring a safe environment for practice and experimentation. Yet, the application of VR in teacher training has only evolved during the last decade. The current project will explore teachers' characteristics and their experiences in a VR classroom.
