Associate Professor Phillip Dawson

Associate Professor Phillip (Phill) Dawson is Associate Director of the Centre for Research in Assessment and Digital Learning (CRADLE), Deakin University. His research focuses on assessment design, feedback, educational technology and academic integrity. Phill was co-lead of the Assessment Design Decisions OLT project, which developed extensive resources to support assessment designers. He is currently working on the Feedback for Learning OLT project, which seeks to share effective feedback designs from across the sector.

Phill is particularly interested in understanding how academics manage to implement effective assessment, despite the many challenges they face. His other great passion is academic integrity and cheating, particularly hacking computer-based exams, and contract cheating. Phill has a decade of teaching experience across three universities, for which he has received multiple Vice-Chancellors' awards and a citation from the Australian Learning and Teaching Council.
