Chris is the Lead Teacher for the Primary School Design Lab at Macquarie College in Newcastle, Australia. He has taught in the USA and Southeast Asia, earning a Master Degree in Outdoor Teacher Education, before moving to Australia. He passionately believes in empowering students to direct their learning, allowing for failure and discovery, and equally important to make time for reflection. As John Dewey so elegantly puts it, "we don't learn from experience, we learn from reflecting on experience." Chris facilitates experiences.
