My educational interest lie in building teacher capacity through the development of learning in the contemporary world, the promotion of flexible learning spaces to meet the needs of the 21st century learner and curriculum for global mindedness. I am called upon nationally and internationally to offer insights into building teacher capacity in de-privatizing teaching and learning. I am widely published in this area of teachers as researchers, authoring and co-authoring six books and a number of journal articles showcasing my experiences and research into leading educational change. Recent publications include, ‘Creating the Outstanding School”, and ‘Teacher As Researcher’. I am on the editorial board for the International Journal of Innovation, Creativity and Change. I was awarded a Fellowship with the Australian Council of Educational Leaders in recognition of my contribution in this area and to fostering teacher professional learning. I am married to a teacher librarian and we have four young adult children.
