exploring the best innovations in learning and teaching

Links & Resources

Interested in some of the resources I’ve mentioned in my keynotes and workshops? Here are a few of the books, articles, videos, and diagrams I’ve found helpful for understanding and broadening my thinking about teaching and learning. I present these links with no endorsement from their original authors — just because I think they’re valuable. Clicking any of the images will take you to the original source.

I’ll continue to add and update resources here as time permits…
