I seek to bring the research methods and practices of the Learning Sciences to the world of educational leadership and instructional design for professional learning. My research falls into four themes:

– the applications of distributed leadership to the central design challenges of schools;

– the development of games and digital media for professional learning;

– adapting Aristotle’s concept of phronesis, or practical wisdom to understanding professional expertise; and

– the future of schooling and technology.

I have led teams to develop and research projects on teacher evaluation, classroom-based simulations, school district leadership, on-line cases of leadership practice (1, 2), fantasy sports, mobile technologies for teachers, game-based assessment, and video games for learning.
