LEAD Graduate School & Research Network

Xian Cheng, M.Sc.

My primary research interests include the intra-individuals’ learning and cognitive abilities, teacher-student relationship as well as teacher’s professional practice. I am attracted by the interdisciplinary and evidence-oriented research, which specifically explores the effective knowledge transfer and acquisition with instructional technology in education context. In the coming three years, as a PhD candidate at LEAD graduate school, I am keen to investigate the use of instructional technology and strategies in enhancing student motivation and academic achievement, and address the research question such as how to encourage feedback, response, and interaction that create an active and supportive classroom environment.
