Are we satisfied with the status quo in the field of education? I'm not. I'm passionate about asking probing questions, getting knowledge experts into dialogue, and uncovering effective practices that will move the field of education forward. The EdGuru Podcast explores new thinking to inspire teaching, learning and leading, and improve educational policy. Together, when we ask the questions, we are the EdGuru!
