Rebecca D. Graham

Rebecca (Dolinsky) Graham M’01 is an Instructional Consultant in the Center for the Advancement of Learning at the University of the District of Columbia.

In this role, she engages with the UDC community through faculty-staff consultations, professional development workshops, peer reviews for online courses (using Quality Matters), student success and program data (analysis and reporting), digital learning technologies, and the scholarship of teaching and learning.

Graham earned her Ph.D. in Sociology (Feminist Studies) from the University of California, Santa Cruz, after earning an M.A. in Sociology from the College of Arts & Sciences at Ohio University.

She also currently co-chairs UDC’s University Assessment Committee, which supports course- and program-level assessment.

What she enjoys most about this work is connecting with faculty members on instructional practices that enhance equitable student learning and success.

“I also enjoy geeking out on assessment practices (e.g., assessment measures, data gathering, and data analysis) that focus on continuous improvement,” Graham says.

Her OHIO Experience

Graham describes her work as a research assistant for Amanda Konradi as an essential experience during her time at OHIO.

“I learned qualitative data analysis skills from her that help me to this day,” she continues.

Konradi was her thesis committee chair and also served as a mentor for Graham while she taught for the Sociology and Anthropology department over several semesters. Graham and Konradi’s article, “Contextualizing the 1990 Campus Security Act and Campus Sexual Assault in Intersectional and Historical Terms,” which is grounded in Graham’s thesis data, was recently accepted in the Journal of Aggression, Conflict and Peace Research.
