Show Guest – Greg CurranPhoto of Greg Curran

 G’day there, I’ve been roaming the fields of education for over 28 years now (eeek!!)

I’ve worked as a Primary/Elementary Teacher, a ELL (English Language Learner) Co-ordinator and Teacher, a Researcher, Lecturer and Manager.

I’m also a Teacher Educator (Lecturer), podcaster and blogger

What makes me tick?

  • Colouring outside the lines, challenging the conventions within education that work to disadvantage, silence, or stigmatise minorities;
  • New ideas – New Approaches – New Ways of Thinking. I’m not content to do the same old over and over again;
  • The challenge of innovation, trying out new approaches, shaking up my ‘business as usual’;
  • Being involved in the journey of change.

About Me: Greg Curran

As an educator with 28 years’ experience, I have a passion for change and innovation.

With a PhD in Education, Counselling and Coaching qualifications I have made it my business to understand change and innovation at a theoretical and practical level.

I have held leadership and co-ordination roles, having lead education reform at a policy, curriculum and staff development level.

Innovation has been a key aspect of my teaching, presenting, research, and writing within the Education sector.
