Office of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic)
Glen O'Grady is the Director, Centre for Higher Education, Learning and Teaching (CHELT) at ANU, and Co-Chair of the ANU Educational Fellowship Scheme (EFS). He has taught for more than 20 years, and has a professional commitment to the development of academic staff as educators who can make a difference in the lives of students. He has a particular interest in establishing academic ecosystems, both within institutions and across higher education systems, which foster, reward and recognise teaching that promotes deep learning.
Glen's research is around approaches to learning, student assessment and teaching philosophies, principles and practices related to problem-based learning, project-based inquiry-based learning, constructivist pedagogies, and the use of virtual reality in enabling embodied cognition.
In addition to his teaching and research commitments, Glen serves on the executive of a number of national and international advisory boards and education associations including the Pan American PBL Association and the Council of Australian Directors of Academic Development (CADAD). He is also a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
