About Steve Shann

63 years old, father of four, I’ve been a teacher (mainly secondary English, but also primary), psychotherapist, writer and PhD student at different times for most of my adult life.

My interest in alternatives to the kind of schooling I had has been lifelong.

Most recently my professional interests have been with Web 2.0 (and specifically the use of Nings in my classroom) and with Teaching for Understanding (TfU).

In 2010 I moved to a full time job in the Faculty of Education at the University of Canberra, where I am an Assistant Professor working mainly (but not exclusively) with our secondary Grad Dip students.

  6. Hi Steve,
    Remember the days from Duffy Primary School? You have certainly continued your interest in education. I’m now living in Castlemaine Victoria, father or 6, the youngest is 4 months old! Would be great to catch up.
