    About me

    Dr Peter Whipp is an Associate Professor in Education at Murdoch University – Western Australia. Peter is the Academic Director of Teaching and Learning, responsible for course offerings and accreditation. He is actively researching ‘differentiation – meeting the needs of all’ in the Health and Physical Education setting with the creation, implementation and evaluation of such programmes. In addition, Peter is determining the outcomes and quality of school-based physical activity and PE programmes, and self-efficacy and its relationship to HPE outcomes and PA participation. Peter is also unpacking the ‘feedback’ construct in classrooms. Peter has published widely, including six books, and over 50 peer-reviewed journal publications. His most recent work includes the development of an innovative M.Ed (Research) program titled the ‘Master Educators Research Collective’ (The MERC) – the design is framed through a research-informed psychological needs perspective (Self Determination Theory; Self-Efficacy). This background and his teaching qualities have been recognised by student, Faculty and University awards including the highly prestigious Australian Award for University Teaching – Awards for Teaching Excellence (2008) by the Australian Learning and Teaching Council (ALTC) – the national body for learning and teaching in higher education.
