Welcome to my homepage.
I’m a speaker, author, adviser, and researcher. I advocate for high quality public education, a strong teaching profession and positive educational change across the world.
In 2020, you’ll be able to connect with my workshops and lectures in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Czech Republic, England, Hong Kong, Kazakhstan, Morocco, New Zealand, Norway, Scotland, and the US, but most have been cancelled or postponed due to coronavirus. You can find out more here.
I am honoured to hold a Research Professorship at Boston College, a Distinguished Visiting Professorship at Hong Kong University, Visiting Professorships at the University of Ottawa and the University of Stavanger, and an Honorary Professorship at Swansea University.
My writing and speaking is based on first-hand research and advisory work around the globe. My 2018 book on Collaborative Professionalism with Michael O’Connor is based on a WISE Foundation project that supported our research in 5 countries. Three books are projected for completion in 2020. My memoir, Moving: a memoir of education and social mobility, with a Foreword by Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister of Scotland, will be published by Solution Tree in June 2020. Our research report on our idea of Leading From the Middle is online and will appear as a book later this year, as will my book with Dennis Shirley, Learn to Be.
This site will connect you to some of my op eds, videos, and the organizations and journals I lead. I am currently Past President of the International Congress of School Effectiveness and Improvement that holds its next Congress in Auckland, New Zealand, in January 2021. I am co-founder & President of ARC education project: a group of nations committed to broadly defined excellence, equity, wellbeing, inclusion, democracy and human rights in education. I have been privileged to serve as an Adviser in Education to the Premier of Ontario and the First Minister of Scotland.
On this website, you’ll have chance to learn about and engage with my research and ideas on professional capital, collaborative professionalism, leading from the middle, education and social class, educational change, and uplifting and sustainable leadership – all in support of stronger educational systems that value broadly defined excellence, inclusion, and equity for all students.
