Hendry, Graham D.; White, Peter; Herbert, Catherine – Active Learning in Higher Education, 2016
We know from research across all levels of education that feedback and interactive teaching have the greatest positive effect on students' achievement.

Hendry, Graham D.; Jukic, Katherine – Journal of University Teaching and Learning Practice, 2014
Assessment is an important element of university curricula for both teachers and students. It provides evidence that students have learned what their teachers expected them to learn.

Curwood, Jen Scott; Tomitsch, Martin; Thomson, Kate; Hendry, Graham D. – Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 2015
Previous research on professional learning has identified that face-to-face consultation is an effective approach to support academics' learning from student feedback. However, this approach is labour and time intensive, and does not necessarily provide all academics with just-in-time support. In this article, we describe an alternative approach,…

Hendry, Graham D.; Oliver, Gary R. – Journal of University Teaching and Learning Practice, 2012
Peer observation of teaching is seen as a supportive and developmental process for improving the quality of teaching in universities. Evidence is emerging that the process of observing is just as if not more valuable than being observed and given feedback. In this study lecturers completing a Foundations program in university learning and teaching…

Hendry, Graham D.; Bromberger, Nikki; Armstrong, Susan – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2011
Criteria and standards-based assessment models are increasingly being adopted by universities as effective practice. However the promise of these models of assessment may not be realised unless teachers can find ways of making criteria and standards understandable to students. Exemplars or examples of previous students' work of high and low…

Teachers' approaches to teaching may influence the way they interpret and respond to student evaluations. In this article we explore the relationship between teachers' approaches to teaching and responses to qualitative student feedback in a problem-based medical program. We asked all lecturers and theme session presenters in 2003 who had received…

Giles, Anna; Martin, Sylvia C.; Bryce, Deborah; Hendry, Graham D. – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2004
Most course evaluation in higher education is designed and conducted by university staff and rarely are students given central responsibility for planning and implementing an evaluation. Involving students as partners in educational evaluation may offer them authentic ways to develop professional skills. We describe an "education option" that…

Hendry, Graham D. – Australian Universities' Review, 1994
Responding to an article about the function of the Australian university (EJ 476 127), an educator criticizes the idea that faculty transmit knowledge to students. It is argued that knowledge and interpretations are not given to or acquired by students but rather that learning and education are processes of inquiry and creation. (MSE)

Hendry, Graham D.; Heinrich, Paul; Lyon, Patricia M.; Barratt, Alexandra L.; Simpson, Judy M.; Hyde, Sarah J.; Gonsalkorale, Shalinie; Hyde, Michelle; Mgaieth, Sara – Educational Psychology, 2005
Small tutorial groups in higher education are often composed without regard to students' gender or broad knowledge background, for example, yet research indicates that composing groups on the basis of gender and prior qualifications may have significant effects on assessment outcomes. Previous studies have also investigated the effects of…
