#50 – Dr. Simon Breakspear – Learning Sprints and Teacher Expertise

This is our 50th episode, and to celebrate we have a very special guest. Someone who inspired this podcast and many of the guests we have featured, it is none other than my friend Dr. Simon Breakspear. Simon is a researcher, advisor and speaker on educational leadership, policy and change. He is the Executive Director of the global consultancy Agile Schools, and Research Fellow at the University of New South Wales, Gonski Institute for Education. He is also the creator of Learning Sprints, an open-source teacher learning approach used by thousands of educators across the planet to enhance their expertise and impact.

Simon’s work has had a big impact on me and my school. If you would like to see some of the Learning Sprint that our school has done this year (2018-2019), visit our Graminia Sprint Dashboard. I hope you learn and are inspired by our conversation.
