What does it take to inspire, empower and equip leaders for world where change is the only constant?

AKmimThis is the question that drives Anne Knock, Director of Development at Sydney Centre for Innovation in Learning (SCIL), research and innovation unit at Northern Beaches Christian School.

She regularly speaks and facilitates groups in the areas of:

People, Place and Pedagogy in the new paradigm

Facilitating change

Challenging current practice

Learning space design

Equipping leaders to navigate change

International education context


Anne is passionate about supporting and facilitating school and learning to inspire and equip young people for an uncertain, yet potentially exciting world.

Together with the team at SCIL, they develop and present professional learning opportunities that immerse educators and leaders into working in new ways:

We can’t effectively change the way teachers teach until we change the way teachers learn.

What else has she done:

  • 17 years as a primary school teacher in Sydney, Australia
  • Leadership and management roles in the not-for-profit sector, working for community, national and international organisations
  • Leadership role in national school system, oversight of state school registration and accreditation

  1. I’m so impressed with your insight. I have recently become frustrated by the number of my colleagues who are not “learners.” Your ideas inspire me!

  2. Thanks Anne for being a carrier of change of educational in Australia. I have been inspired by Ken Robinson, Dylan Williams and Guy Claxton to make a change in our schools but didn’t know where to start, you have given a voice to what many educators, like myself, are passionate about. Can’t wait to read the posts from your trip. All the best,

  3. Hi Anne,
    Enjoy your blog. We produce a TV series in Melbourne called Today’s Schools. If you get to Melbourne let’s know. We would love to interview you . Let’s know if you would like a link to some of our segments.

  4. Hi Anne,

    I would love to get more in touch with you. My name is Brooke Maasepp (maiden name, Keegan). I am Kevin Keegan’s daughter, Grace Keegan’s grand-daughter – I think we are related in some way.
    I am a Kindergarten teacher in the ACT and am heavily involved in AITSL’s Learning Frontiers project, working as a leader for our design Hub. My school is one of the Lab schools in the ACT and I would love some of your insights as we begin this journey. My dad was telling me a little bit about what you do, and I have read some of the things through this blog. I also have a blog, brookejaimie.wordpress.com, sharing and tracking my professional growth and development, with a particular focus on the LF project. Feel free to take a look, it is in its early days.

    I look forward to hearing more from you.

    Kind Regards,
