Most of the theses examined cognitive-developmental or clinical issues. Two master students have just finished their studies and three doctoral students are working on issues relating to executive functions, working memory, and academic performance.<br />At Bond University, I taught undergraduate and honours courses on Introduction to Psychology, Learning and Memory, Cognitive Psychology, Developmental Psychology, Research Methods, and Statistics.<br />At NIE, I have taught at the diploma, bachelor, and postgraduate level. Courses include introductory courses on assessment, educational psychology, memory and cognition in classroom settings, and a doctoral proseminar on applied cognitive developmental psychology. For the last few years, I have been co-ordinating two courses on research methodologies in education. For these methodology courses, I have prepared a 3 CD-set audio-video recording to facilitate off-campus learning.<br />Publications <br />Submitted or In Preparation <br />Lee, K., Ng, S. F., Pe, M.
