Bevan believes the learning experience for students can and should be better. A 2018 CORE Education e-Fellow, where his research focused on the use of teaching through play in a secondary school, Bevan has deep knowledge of how to enable and support genuinely agentic learning contexts for students. Bevan taught at secondary level and has held HOD and school governance roles.
Bevan takes a strongly relational approach to his PLD work and focuses on working with individuals or small teams who want to put their learners at the centre of their practice.
Bevan’s strengths are:
- Supporting pedagogy for agency, with expertise in play
- Strategic thinking and planning
