Andrew Fraser, Australia, Primary, Secondary, Teacher Professional Learning

I am an educator with over 25 years as a teacher and leader and am presently a team leader with the Learning Services team of a non-government system of 77 schools in Western Sydney.

I am passionate about learning for both students and teachers and am committed to the strengthening of the teaching profession, and enhancing the capacity of teachers to be leaders for learning in the 21st Century.

My current responsibilities include researching, promoting and developing innovative practices and paradigms for effective learning and teaching, and supporting processes for building teacher capacity.

Prior to this I was a leader with a non-government system of 114 schools in metropolitan Sydney and was a key team member in developing the system’s Learning Framework and Assessment is for Learning statement.

In 2006 I was fortunate to travel on a Churchill Fellowship which took me to Canada, England, Scotland and Germany to examine teacher-led innovation and development to improve professional practice.

A Piece of Me in the World
- Thinking about education today for tomorrow: possibilities and solutions.

Originally started to document a Churchill Fellowship in 2006 studying teacher-led innovation and development to improve professional practice, this blog has developed into a space for musings on 21st Century learning. Of particular interest are creativity and innovation in education, teacher inquiry and knowledge building, developing Next practice, transforming schools and 21st century learning.

My thoughts meander through the philosophical, the pragmatic, the possible and perhaps the impossible!
