Professor Graham Butt

Professor in Education

Graham joined the School of Education at Oxford Brookes as a Professor in Education in June 2012, having previously served as a Reader in Geography Education and Deputy Head of the School of Education, University of Birmingham. He is a founding member, and Chair, of the Geography Education Research Collective (GEReCo) - a group of research-active geography educationists based in English universities, dedicated to the promotion of research and publication in their field.  Graham is an invited member of the British Sub Committee of the International Geographical Union-Commission on Geography Education (IGU-CGE), and a long standing member of the Geographical Association (GA). His research predominantly focusses on geography education, although he has also published on assessment, managing teacher workload, the role of teaching assistants and workforce modernisation/remodelling.

Graham was an undergraduate at the University of Oxford, returning to complete a PGCE at the Oxford University Department of Educational Studies in the 1980s. He has Masters degrees from the University of Oxford and from the Institute of Education, University of London. Graham’s PhD was awarded by the University of Birmingham in 1996 and his thesis, 'An investigation into the dynamics of the National Curriculum Geography working group (1989-1990)', may be downloaded from the University of Birmingham eThesis repository.

Graham’s recent books include Lesson Planning (3rd edition) (2008), Making Assessment Matter (2010), and Geography, Education and the Future (2011), all published by Continuum/Bloomsbury.

Before his career in higher education Graham worked in retail management, later becoming a geography teacher and then Head of Geography in a Hertfordshire comprehensive school.

Teaching

Teaching responsibilities have included the training of PGCE/PGDipEd (QTS) Geography students, Masters students and EdD/PhD supervisions. Graham has also taught Health Professionals on courses run jointly by the School of Education and Medical School at the University of Birmingham.

Research students

Graham is currently Director of Studies, or Supervisor, to the following PhD and EdD students (titles and themes are not yet finalised):

  • Elisabet Basford : ‘The impact of "academisation" on TA deployment’.
  • Oliver Bridge:  ‘The effects of Islam on the moral development of primary school students in Turkey’.
  • Andrew Dack: Effective middle leadership in secondary education – perceptions from the inside.
  • Ido Gideon: ‘Communities and the moral foundations of citizenship education’.
  • Kathleen Greenway: ‘Why do qualified nurses persist in administering IM injections in a ritualised fashion? What are the barriers to change?’
  • Tracey Martin Millward: ‘Principles into practice; Forest schools in the UK’.
  • Nick Swarbrick:  an exploration of literature for 3-7 year olds published in England since 1967, with respect to ‘the outdoors’.
  • Adrian Twissell:  a critical investigation of differentiation, learning styles and technology in a case study secondary school.

Research

Since 2000, Graham has been engaged in funded research worth £897K (including a total of £108K as sole, or joint, grant holder). He has also previously been the Co Director of a £100K Training Schools’ initiative with a Birmingham comprehensive school, the result of a successful bid to the (then) DfES.

Graham’s recent research has addressed issues around the production of high quality research in geography education, with particular reference to the use of complexity theory and action research methods (with Phil Wood). In association with members of GEReCo, he will shortly be writing and editing a book which in part focusses on the nature of geographical knowledge and its place within geography education. Much of Graham’s previous research has explored the relationship between geography education and assessment; this work has been the basis for a series of articles in the journals Into Teaching, Teaching Geography and a book, Making Assessment Matter (2010).

Longitudinal research into the initial training and early career development of British South Asian women teachers (with Lin MacKenzie and Russell Manning) has challenged some of the existing narratives about the demands and opportunities that such teachers face. This work has connections to Graham’s earlier collaborative research into teacher job satisfaction, workload, and modernization/remodelling of the teaching workforce (see Butt,G and Gunter, H (eds)(2007) Modernizing schools: people, learning and organizations).
