ABOUT THE HOSTS
Having worked in Education for the past 37 years, Chris' commitment has always been to supporting the development of authentic and meaningful learning for all students. While getting his Doctorate at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, Chris worked at the internationally renowned Harvard Project Zero, where he continued to work as a Principal Investigator leading and co-directing several projects, including several in K-12 schools and districts in the US, and educators (both K12 and higher ed) in Colombia. From 2001-2003, Chris worked as a high school redesign coach for 11 of the high schools in Seattle and subsequently at Brown University where he worked with dozens of high schools throughout the Northeast, New Jersey, and New York. Subsequently, he worked on a project on how to support State Departments of Education up and down the Eastern seaboard to assist school and district improvement throughout their states. Eventually he ended where he is now teaching in the Doctor of Education program at Northeastern University, where he and his colleagues work with over 1,300 doctoral students around the world on how they can become changes agents and pursue meaningful change in their communities.
"Right now, I consider the best I can do is to lift up the stories of innovation and support others to create new environments that support students' sense of agency and possibility."
Right now he is focused on supporting a revolution in education by connecting with others, supporting their efforts, and showcasing what is possible.
