Christopher Charles Deneen

Senior Lecturer in Higher Education Curriculum & Assessment, The University of Melbourne

My teaching, development and leadership focus on effective learning engagements in universities. I have held several higher education positions in the culturally diverse contexts of New York, Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia.

My research focuses on assessment; specifically, its context, design and relationship to learning and the curriculum. I am especially interested in how enabling technologies may interact with assessment, feedback and learning to mediate learner outcomes and experience across and within multiple disciplines. A current aspect of my research is the relationship of ePortfolios and self-regulated learning. I position my research within higher education, with implications for multiple disciplines, including teacher education, medicine and health sciences.

I'm also a half-decent bass player and scuba diver, but... I won't be quitting my day job anytime soon.
