I currently serve as Distinguished Professor of Education at the University of Macau (Macau SAR, China). Previously at the Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) and University of Auckland (New Zealand), Timothy is also currently Honorary Professor at the University of Auckland (New Zealand) and an International Collaborative Partner at the Universiti Tengku Abdul Rahman (Malaysia). His research interests are multi-disciplinary and include both substantive and methodological areas. These are Educational Psychology (Self-efficacy-teachers and students; Beliefs about teaching and learning;  Meta-cognition), ICT in Education (Technology acceptance and adoption; e-learning; digital natives), Music Education (Psychological processes of music teaching and learning), and Quantitative Methods (Psychometrics; Instrument development and validation; cross-cultural measurement; issues in survey development and administration; structural equation modeling; multilevel modeling; latent growth modeling).  Underpinning these research topics is a constant desire to improve teaching and learning and explore how this can inform teachers' practice and professional development. For example, my research into technology acceptance has promoted the use of statistical modeling to gain insights on how and what variables interact with each other to explain technology usage among users in education.
