Dave is an educator at heart who believes in the passion and inventiveness of all educators. He helps curricular partner groups and teams translate between ‘design speak’ and ‘educator speak’ by fostering the conditions for great learning experience design solutions to emerge. Dave’s projects, courses, and workshops are centered on advancing more active, engaged, successful, and valuable learning experiences. He understands that creating new ways to collaborate, learn, research, and deliver instruction happens through good conversations and storytelling.
