Join our community of educators exploring texts and themes around teaching and learning, both philosophically and practically.

Great for individuals to dig deeper into your reading or for whole staff development. Many beginning, relieving and returning teachers find this useful to build up their professional reading in achievable chunks.

Lead by Megan Gallagher, she is a New Zealand teacher and is a self-confessed neuro-nerd who is passionate about using neuroscience to inform practise and support learners to be their best selves.

Megan is a regular writer about teacher effectiveness and wellbeing as well as an international and national conference & online summit speaker.
