Brian D. Denman, Ph.D.

Senior Research Fellow

The Center for Comparative and International Education




        

    Brian D. Denman is an associate professor of teaching, learning and assessment at the University of New England, Armidale, Australia, where he teaches applied leadership and comparative and international education. He also serves as Deputy Head of School and Head of Department for Globalisation, Leadership and Policy and Diversity, Equity and Sustainability.

    Denman has developed a unique master of comparative and international education at UNE in 2021, which uses a Personal Assessment Tool (PAT) that attempts to benchmark, track and scaffold higher order skills for each student over the duration of the degree.  The degree is designed to broaden the discourse about educational equity and opportunity to master’s degree students from several institutions/countries including China, and the PAT has already shown individual and cross-cultural strengths that may assist with employment prospects.  It is generally understood that the utility of custom-tailored educational assessments benefits not only both instructor and student, but also provides a more personalised learning strategy for fundamentally transforming the way teaching and learning is approached and assessed at any given level of education.

    Denman’s current research interests focus on assessment, accountability, and visualising evidence-informed learning achievements.  Denman has held many posts, including Secretary-General of GlobalCIE and the World Comparative Education Societies (WCCES), UNESCO Fellow, UNE Council member, President of the Australian and New Zealand and Comparative and International Education Society (ANZCIES), and Editor-in-Chief of the International Education Journal:  Comparative Perspectives.  He holds a Ph.D. in social and policy studies in education from the University of Sydney.
