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 2019, you’ll be able to connect with my workshops and lectures in Australia, California, Connecticut, Canada, Chile, Denmark, England, France, Hong Kong, Iceland, Ireland, Japan, Maine, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New Zealand, Norway, Ohio, Scotland, South Carolina, South Korea, Switzerland, Texas, Uruguay, Wales and Washington DC. You can find out more here.
I am honored to hold a Research Professorship at Boston College, a Distinguished Visiting Professorship at Hong Kong University and Visiting Professorships at the University of Ottawa and the University of Stavanger.
My writing and speaking is based on first-hand research and advisory work around the globe. My new book on Collaborative Professionalism with Michael O’Connor is based on a WISE Foundation project that supported our research in 5 countries. Our research report on our idea of Leading From the Middle is now up online and will appear as a book later this year.
This site will connect you to some of my blogs, videos, things I am reading, 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 Morocco in January 2020. I am founder & leader of the Atlantic Rim Collaboratory (ARC): a group of 9 nations committed to broadly defined excellence, equity, wellbeing, inclusion, democracy and human rights. I’m also the founder and Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Professional Capital and Community. 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, 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.
