Churchill Fellow 2012

Earlier in the year I applied for Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Fellowship to study the inquiry process in mathematics education.

To my surprise, my application was successful and in 2013 I will have the opportunity to get out there and see what is happening.

The Learning Journey

During April and part of May 2013 I will be visiting schools in New York, San Francisco, Tokyo and Singapore. I will also be attending the NCTM conference in Denver, Colorado.

I'm excited already - it should be lots of fun and a great experience. While I have made preliminary arrangements with several schools, if you happen to be in any of these cities and would like to arrange a visit, let me know and I'll see what we can organise.

Special Thanks

I'd like to thank several people who helped me in the application process - Peter Sullivan of Monash University, Melbourne; Philip Heath, Principal of Radford College; my staff team on Year 4 whose enthusiasm and support really encouraged me; and my wife and family - thanks everyone!
