FASS Graduate Students' Teaching Award (GSTA)

The inaugural FASS GSTA was awarded in August 2010 to recognise the Faculty's outstanding tutors and affirm our commitment to teaching excellence. All Graduate Student Teaching Assistants (i.e. registered Masters and PhD students of departments in FASS, inclusive of both full-time and part-time students) who teach a minimum of 20 hours can be considered.  This includes both tutors and those formally designated as Teaching Assistants.  A student who wins the award three times will be recognised in an Honour Roll.  He/She will then not be eligible for subsequent GSTAs within the same graduate candidature.  Please refer to the latest list of winners below.

Early Word Learning in Toddlers

Description of the Research Project:
This project is designed to investigate how word learning unfolds in young toddlers, both monolingual and bilingual. A particular focus is how and when children appreciate the role of tone in Mandarin Chinese as determining the meanings of words. Toddlers are taught new words and then presented with tonal variants of those words. Their eye movements are recorded to determine how accurate they are at mapping words to meaning.

Student's role in this project:
Students are involved in infant and toddler testing. In addition, they will be involved in data coding, data analysis and if interested, in manuscript preparation and publication of findings.

Ecosystem Recovery in Response

Ecosystem Recovery in Response to Natural and Human Disturbance: Pang Nga Bay Thailand

Description of the Research Project:
There is increasing recognition of the value of mangrove forests, seagrass meadows, and coral reefs in providing habitat for important ocean products and protecting coastal communities from natural disasters, including tsunamis. Both natural events and human activity stress all of these ecosystems; and most are now in decline compared with historical periods. For example, mangrove coverage along the Andaman Coast and in the Gulf of Thailand has decreased by almost 20% in the last thirty years, largely in response to human disturbance, but also natural events. Some researchers believe that the health of any one of these components relies, in part, on chemical, biological, and hydrodynamic interaction between all components. Such ecosystem "facilitation", which has yet to be shown in the Indian Ocean where biodiversity is very high, may be of enormous importance for the protection of coastlines from natural disasters, as well as, the preservation of fishing livelihoods. The objective of this project is to understand the extent that ecosystem facilitation occurs between mangrove forests, sea grass meadows, and coral reefs, with respect to natural and anthropogenic stressing phenomena.

Student's role in this project:
Students participate in field sampling campaigns and lab analysis of sediment and selected element fluxes among mangrove, seagrass, and coral ecosystems at the field site in Southern Thailand. The students will work with graduate students and post-doc students in a field setting on the remote island of Ko Yao Yai in Pang Nga Bay, along the Andaman Coast of Thailand. The student contributions will help form the basis for published works, and collected data will be used to parameterise models predicting sediment and nutrient movement between the three ecosystem components.
