Worth knowing

  • We’ve run lots of half & full-day webinars (or all-nighters for James when his audience is in Australia or NZ) as well the more usual 45-90mins sessions
  • We highly recommend having a co-presenter to connect & question as this adds a warmth & a conversational style that is always well-received
  • One of our first webinars was hacked by a Russian dancing in his undercrackers. We learned a lot about online security that day!

The Importance of Challenge with Learning – Jan 2020

Learning Pits and Reasons for Hope with James Nottingham

Daniel & Daniel Summer Special with James Nottingham – June 2021

James Nottingham: The Learning Pit, cognitive conflict and our primary roles as educators  – July 2021

James has deep knowledge of schooling and a great sense of humour, but most important there is seeming no challenge he is not prepared to undertake to make a difference to the learning lives of children.


How can an evening webinar be so entertaining AND practical? Simply perfect.

The webinars with James were eye-opening. I had no idea how engaging, interactive & enjoyable online learning could be. They gave me hope, joy and practical strategies by the bucket load without even needing to leave my house. Superb!

Upskilling my skills and knowledge was made so much easier by listening to an enthusiastic, experienced and extraordinarily skilled presenter who is willing to answer questions and engage with his audience.

The Pit Podcasts presented wonderful opportunities to approach learning in ways that helped reduce my students’ anxieties and boost their progress. I am a groupie for life!

Every time I meet James, he makes me think deeper about learning and teaching. What a great job he did yesterday evening in The Hague!
