Beverley Oliver is ALTC National Teaching Fellow 2011 and Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education) at Deakin University, Australia. Through her National Teaching Fellowship (Assuring Graduate Capabilities), she is engaging curriculum leaders of undergraduate courses from any discipline to work with their colleagues, industry partners, students and graduates to: define course-wide levels of achievement in key capabilities, articulated through standards rubrics; embed the rubrics into student portfolios and course review portfolios and share the challenges and opportunities of such approaches through scholarly publications.
Previous nationally-funded projects include: the ALTC Good Practice Guide: Assuring Graduate Outcomes, the ALTC Teaching Fellowship Benchmarking partnerships for graduate employability and an ALTC Competitive Grant Building Course Team Capacity for Graduate Employability. Beverley's leadership of other projects include: Curtin University's Curriculum 2010 project (curriculum reform focused on graduate employability, curriculum mapping, ePortfolios and evaluation of curriculum effectiveness) and eVALUate (Curtin University's online student feedback system).
Beverley's leadership has been recognised with two ALTC Citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning (2008 and 2010). She publishes in a range of teaching and learning areas, including assuring graduate attributes and capabilities, employability; student, graduate and employer evaluation; curriculum renewal, mapping and analytics; ePortfolios and student ownership and use of emerging devices and Web 2.0 applications. Beverley is the Editor of the Journal of Learning and Teaching for Graduate Employability.
