Graham joined the ITL in September 2009. He began his academic career in teacher education at the University of Sydney in the then Faculty of Education. His background is in educational psychology. In 1995 he moved to the Faculty of Medicine to join the fledgling ‘medical education unit’ established to develop and evaluate the pioneering graduate-entry medical program. He has over 20 years educational development and research experience in education.
Graham is the program coordinator for the Graduate Certificate in Educational Studies (Higher Education) and the Principles and Practice of University Teaching and Learning program, an introductory program for staff new to the University of Sydney and/or new to teaching.
Graham’s research interests include teaching and student learning in higher education, and academic staff professional learning. His most recent research has focussed on students’ perceptions of the usefulness of exemplars and benefits to staff of peer observational learning.
