CHANGE AGENT Eric has over two decades experience creating the conditions that grow students that are “thinkers, planners and doers.” (Ritchhart, R.). Eric’s work is at the intersection of practices that support Project Based Learning (PBL) and the tools students need to thrive in a globalized community. Eric knows the best way to reach learners is to encourage risks with a safety net and engage in purposeful activities with an emphasis on voice and choice.

He has worked with over 1000 teachers delivering PBL training and sustained support.
