Chloe Shu-Hua Yeh

Personal statement

Dr. Chloe Shu-Hua Yeh is a senior lecturer in Education Studies at Bath Spa University. Currently, she teaches subjects of education studies and research methods in undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

My teaching expertise is grounded from my previous educational backgrounds. I completed a BSc degree in Physics in 2000 and a MSc degree in Science Education at National Kaohsiung Normal University in 2002. The research I carried out for my Master degree aimed to illustrate students scientific problem solving and thinking processes, using qualitative research approach.

I entered teaching as a qualified Science and Physics teacher in secondary/senior high schools in Taiwan for three years before I further pursued a PhD degree at the Graduate School of Education in the University of Bristol. My PhD research was based on the field of educational psychology, using quantitative experimental research approach to explore the cognitive and emotional effects of computer game play on creativity. I then became a lecturer in Psychology of Education at Liverpool Hope University since 2012 for 4 years until I started to work at Bath Spa University in 2016.

Currently, I have two main areas of research expertise. One continues the field of my PhD research on emotion and cognition (creativity and attentional breadth) using experimental research approach. The other is my recently interest in the field of positive psychology on exploring university students’ academic motivation and subjective well-being, using questionnaires as research method. I am
also editing a book International academics’ teaching experiences using auto-ethnographical approach.
