Hire me > Public Speaking

I regularly give invited conference presentations and workshops at schools and universities. This really is one of the most pleasurable aspects of my job, as I get to travel and meet new people, and generally I learn a lot myself too. Having worked in many different countries and educational contexts, I can take my experiences and share them with others. I love playing this intermediary, facilitative role.

The areas I regularly speak on include: the role of cutting edge technology in education, learner and teacher autonomy, and teacher leadership. This list is not exhaustive, and I am happy to consider other topics as well. Below you will find a list of subjects I have covered recently.
