Welcome to AutomatED: the newsletter on how to teach better with tech.
Each week, we share what we have learned — and are learning — about AI and tech in the university classroom. What works, what doesn't, and why.
Co-Founder, Primary Writer, and Consultant
You can find more about Graham at his boring academic website, but here are the relevant bits:
He got his PhD in Philosophy in 2019 from the University of Notre Dame. His main research project is a historically-informed inquiry into argumentation and the ways that our minds form beliefs in response to arguments.
He teaches Philosophy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he got his BA in Philosophy and Economics.
He has taught 600 students across 7 courses (17 sections), at UNC-CH, the University of Notre Dame, and at Fort Lewis College.
He has taught in-person courses, hybrid courses, online synchronous courses, and online asynchronous courses.
He has several teaching certifications related to online teaching, accessibility, and tech use.
He is a founder of three tech-startups. One is focused on integrating AI with philosophical research databases, another is developing a philosophy app, and the other is focused on tech integrations for teachers in higher education (AutomatED is a “division” of the latter).
