About Professor David Lynch

Professor David Lynch BEd(JCU), MEd(School Admin)(JCU), DipTeach(JCU), EdD(CQU), FAACLM(OTHAUS)
I am currently the Head of SCU's Coffs Harbour Campus and Professor in the School of Education at Southern Cross University. I am the author of numerous articles and texts on school improvement,  teacher education, learning management and learning design. Together, my research and development interests form the basis of a radical rethink on schooling, school improvement, teaching and teacher education. My professional background is in primary education having been a teacher and senior state school principal in early professional life. My academic career includes positions as professor of education, faculty sub-dean, head of campus and head of the school of education at a number of universities.
My current area of research interest and expertise is ‘whole of school teaching improvement’. To date my work has been focused on models and processes that support schools to enact teaching and learning improvement agendas. This work is focused into schools in Australia, Japan, Europe and the UAE. Research income to date exceeds $3M.
