About this Event

“This is the first of a two-part series dealing with bringing international best practice into the classroom.”

"Key Lessons Learned from International Research, Experience and Best Practice" - Bringing International Practice into the Classroom [1]

"Leading and relevant international best practices and techniques are high-lighted and explained in this session, so that participants can become equipped with an ‘inventory’ of best practice to employ as part of their school improvement strategy. (Of course, for BSfS clients, many elements of this content will have already been presented to the school in the form of the content of the school’s BSfS report and its Recommendations, and in this way will be self-reinforcing.)

The focus here is very much on the particular and the specific.

This is a somewhat unique feature of the BSfS program which seeks out content from the international literature that can be adopted in the classroom. It is less common for the results of programs like PISA to be used to inform classroom practice directly, even though a good deal of the content from PISA reports and the OECD’s analyses, for example, relates directly to teaching and learning. This session, therefore, seeks out key content that can validly and successfully influence and guide classroom practice. "

Peter is an internationally recognised and respected professional with over 40 years' experience in education. His practical knowledge and understanding of education began with 18 years in Victorian schools, where he taught a broad range of disciplines and held numerous school leadership roles. This direct involvement in schools at the commencement of his career has equipped Peter with a thorough knowledge and understanding of the dynamics of schools, teaching, learning and of students. Subsequently, Peter moved into education-based roles outside of the school setting, Peter has held a number of senior management roles in very significant programs and organizations internationally. These include: three positions as general manager; one as national manager; and four senior management roles. Peter has had overall management responsibility for the world's largest and most complex education assessment program - the Program for International Student Assessment or PISA. He has established national education programs in both Australia (NAPLAN) and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (NAP).

Peter has been intensely involved in the application of technology in education. He introduced, for example, the first large-scale on screen marking technology in Australia (Pearson's ePen) that went on to become the national standard for marking in the NAPLAN program - involving over 1 million students annually. He was also significantly involved in promoting the digital curriculum work of The Le@rning Federation at Education Services Australia that involved the generation of specialist digital content for schools, backed by $180m of state and commonwealth funding. Peter project directed the planning and development of the My School website in Australia commencing this work in 2009 and subsequently in 2013 the introduction of NAPLAN online assessment through its National Sample Assessment program. Peter also led for the first three years of its development, the NAPLAN online program. He has also been closely involved with the use of technology to support international programs including PISA.

Most recently, at the OECD, Peter has managed both the PISA and the PISA-based Test for Schools programs that have provided him with invaluable international experience. Peter's work at the OECD included leading the revitalization of the PISA 2018 assessment domain of Global Competence and exploring the dimensions and possibilities of what can be called the 'new metrics' - that attempt to evaluate performance of countries, schools and students in the 'non-traditional' domains of teaching and learning that are considered vital to students' ability to succeed in life and work in their post-school years.

Peter is very keen to further extend his experience, knowledge and skills through working collaboratively with colleagues internationally, in service of the educational advancement of students (especially those suffering disadvantage) and to support and lead the work of schools in evaluating and improving their performance. In 2018 Peter will be Global Project Director for the Balanced Scorecard for Schools (or BSFS) program in partnership with Marshall Cavendish Education, Singapore, as well as acting as an advisor to the Minister for Education in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
