吳俊育 教授

Jerry, Jiun-Yu Wu is currently the Professor at IED/CTE, National Chiao Tung University, Taiwan. He is a quantitative methodologist specializing in a range of advanced statistical and computational modeling, including Multilevel Structural Equation Modeling (MSEM) and Machine Learning techniques on the analysis of cross-sectional and longitudinal structured/unstructured data. His research interests focus on the cognitive, metacognitive, and behavioral process of how people learn, adapt, and succeed in the technology-enhanced environment.

Using large-scale data from Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), he studies students’ electronic reading literacy and printed reading literacy and how they interact with the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) considering the interplay of individual differences in engagement in online activities, metacognitive knowledge, gender differences, and web navigation skills. Suggestions to close the gender gap in reading literacy and digital divide have been provided for policy-making based on his study results on international comparison and his service as the co-PI in the international project of PISA 2015.

He is interested in students’ online behavior as well as factors that motivate or hinder their learning performance within the personal learning environment (PLE) premised on social media. Specifically, he integrates different domains of analytical techniques, such as machine learning, statistical modeling, behavioral analysis, and cognitive and psychological assessments to probe into students’ attention state and regulatory strategies in PLE. Wu models the interrelationship of learners’ psychological and behavioral processes with their performance and adjustment outcomes. Positive intervention strategies were suggested to prevent digital distraction and enhance achievement and psychological well-being based on a series of theoretical and empirical investigations. He has been awarded 2019 Ta-You Wu Memorial Award, MOST, Taiwan.

He teaches introductory and advanced applied statistics at the undergraduate and graduate level, including applied multivariate analysis, structural equation modeling, hierarchical linear modeling and multilevel modeling in both English and Mandarin. He is committed to diversity and equity in education. He served as the supervisor for the Schweitzer Volunteer Teacher Program at NCTU for four years (2014-2017), guiding university students to devote their pedagogic competence to the underprivileged junior high students in rural areas of Hsinchu. He also partners with junior high school teachers in rural areas in integrating ICT through serious simulation games in a STEM financial literacy course. He has been awarded the Outstanding Teaching Award (The highest teaching honor at NCTU, 2018) and Teaching Excellence Award (2016), NCTU, Taiwan.

He is the PI in several government-funded research projects and was the Co-PI of Taiwan National Center for PISA 2015. He served as the guest editor for Frontiers in Psychology of the special issue about the recent advancement of SEM, and is on the editorial board for Journal of Clinical Psychology (SSCI), Journal of School Psychology (SSCI), International Journal of STEM Education (ESCI) and Journal of Psychological Testing (TSSCI). He has been awarded Outstanding Reviewer for Computers & Education (2017), School Psychology (2017) and Computers in Human Behavior (2015). His scholarly works have been published in high-impact flagship journals, such as Computers & Education, Computers in Human Behavior, Child Development, Journal of Educational Psychology, Structural Equation Modeling, Journal of School Psychology, Journal of Computer-Assisted Learning, Interactive Learning Environment, Learning and Individual Differences, Journal of Experimental Education, School Psychology Quarterly…etc.
