Council Member - President and Head at Pearson College UWC
Craig has worked in international education for over 25 years teaching IB English, Philosophy, Film and Theory of Knowledge along the way. He has been a school leader and Principal in three IB schools in Hong Kong, Singapore and Vancouver whilst maintaining his work for the IB Educator Network as a teacher trainer, lead school evaluator and curriculum writer. More recently he has been Director of Education for the Dulwich College International group of schools spanning 13 campuses and four countries. In this role Craig recruited a team of executive IB Heads to work together to support, connect and quality assure the entire network. Part of this work involved interviewing over 5000 students to establish the quality of experience and learning for students across vastly different contexts. This experience and others has resulted in a number of articles addressing intrinsic motivation, the need for outdoor experiential engagement and a call for ‘transcendent’ education. This also reflects Craig’s work over the past ten years in the Himalayan region of Ladakh joining medics from all over the world involved in the Himalayan Health Project and wider protection of the Mahayana traditions, language and culture of the region.
"I have been aware and supportive of the UWC movement ever since my first teaching post in Penang, Malaysia. The deliberate and determined focus on diversity, access and social justice is a lived experience for UWC students and this educational reality is enormously attractive to me. Pearson College’s additional ecosystem education platform and growing partnership with the local Scia’new First Nation community as part of a wider commitment to indigenous reconciliation, seems to represent the best elements of a UWC education."
