Dr Graham Glanville is the Project Lead for the National RPL Project at TCD.

Graham was formerly Dean of School and Head of the Centre for Teaching and Learning at CCT College Dublin. In these capacities, he provided a leading role in the overall programmatic and academic development of the College and in the enhancement of institutional teaching, learning and assessment. He has been lecturing in the fields of IT and Business for over twenty years and holds a PhD and MSc in Strategic Business Information Systems. He achieved a Doctorate in Education in 2020 from the University of Hertfordshire focusing on the development of student self-efficacy through social learning.  His doctoral experience provided an opportunity to work as a team member on the National Student Engagement Programme's (NStEP) Task Force focusing on the development of a new national framework for student engagement. He was a Programme Committee member of the International Conference on Engaging Pedagogy (ICEP) and Associate Member of the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning during his time at CCT College Dublin. Currently, he is an Executive Committee member of the All-Ireland Society for Higher Education (AISHE), an academic submission reviewer for AISHE-J (Special interest group on Student Engagement and Partnership), and an academic submission reviewer for SIGCSE (Special Interest Group on Computer Science Education), and an Editorial Board member of the Dublin Business School academic business journal.

As RPL Project Lead he is now driving the delivery of Trinity's strategic ambitions for the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) as part of a national RPL project for higher education. This 4-year project is coordinated at a national/sectoral level by the Technological Higher Education Association (THEA) and is funded under the Higher Education Authority Human Capital Initiative (HCI). This innovative and ambitious collaboration between Universities, the Institutes of Technology, and Technological Universities seeks to build a coherent approach to RPL within and across the higher education sector.
