New Pedagogies for Deep Learning
For the last 12 years Max was a school and system leader with the Department of Education, Tasmania. He has headed K-12 technology-based educational reform initiatives, school and district resourcing, and worked with teachers and school leaders to build their proficiency in leading, teaching and learning. Max also currently lectures into and co-designs pre-service teacher education modules at the University of Tasmania (UTAS). Prior to working in Tasmania, Max taught at an international school in Southern China, and in Geelong, Australia.
Max has a number of post graduate certifications including a Master of Educational Leadership, several accreditations in coaching and brokering approaches, and a broad and varied skillset built on experience both within and from outside the education sector. Besides being passionate about family life and tinkering in the shed, Max is highly committed to exploring how effective education systems lead, educate and learn with, from and for future generations, using technology as an amplifier and connector of leaders, learners and learning.
