Christine Reid, Educational Consultant

Louise is well placed to support educators in all fields - classroom teachers to administrators, tertiary facilitators. She comes with personal experience in all these fields. What is more she is a keen learner always on the lookout for fresh creative ways to engage learners which includes teachers seeking to grow their practice. Louise spent several years writing curriculum and PD packages so her expertise in how to engage adult learners is to be sought. She applies best, most current pedagogical theory to all her online developed PD. She excels as a personal coach walking alongside the learner and helping them realise their ideas and ambitions.


Dominique Jacqueline, Education officer at
Lutheran Education Queensland

Louise was instrumental in the development, delivery and support of online learning modules used in a Christian Studies professional learning course offered by Lutheran education. 


Louise facilitated the online learning for teachers providing both technological and learning support; easing them into the online environment, supporting them through the process, challenging their thinking processes, giving feedback, encouraging them, coaching them through their submitted units of inquiry.

 

Louise is a lead learner herself and strives to keep abreast of the latest research and trends in education. Deep learning for students and teachers is a distinguishing feature of her work. I highly recommend her to you.
