James Nottingham is the creator of the Learning Pit, one of the most popular illustrations of learning to emerge in the last 20 years.
Due to the demand for his services in Scandinavia, Australia, New Zealand and the UK, he hasn’t visited the USA and Canada very much yet – though when he has, he’s received standing ovations for his keynotes as well as deep appreciation for his guidance in schools and districts.
So, in January 2024, he chose to publish his 12th book – TEACH Brilliantly – with Solution Tree so that his work can be brought more extensively to schools and districts in the USA and Canada.
The services he offers include powerful keynote speeches, whole staff PD, online delivery, and demonstration lessons (give him any grade and he’ll demonstrate excellent pedagogy for staff to observe & review.
Having worked closely with professors Carol Dweck (Mindset) and John Hattie (Visible Learning) as well teaching across the pre-K-12 range, James offers a depth and breadth of expertise including equity, questioning, feedback, challenge, engagement, inquiry, and learning how to learn. More details
