With fifteen years experience in school principalship David Turner joined Central Queensland University (CQU) to further his involvement in the Bachelor of Learning Management (BLM) teacher education program. David's last school, in the rural setting of the Sunshine Coast hinterland, had been a BLM Teaching School for a number of years. A pilot project, conducted in 2004, assessed the implementation of a research based pedagogical framework with all teaching staff at the school. This framework subsequently became an important element of the BLM program and the experiences gained through the pilot have proved valuable for CQU and other BLM Teaching Schools. David has professional interests in school effectiveness, the importance of pedagogy in achieving learning outcomes for students, developing teacher capability and teacher education.
