Here are some testimonials from our happy clients:
“I want to thank you for the Differentiated Instruction workshops you conducted at Brisbane Bayside State College. The workshops were extremely practical and engaging. It is great to see our staff keen to attend twilight PD after a full day of teaching because your workshops related directly to their classroom practice with practical ideas and strategies.
As we move to the new Senior Assessment in Qld., your focus on task verbs (cognitive verbs) provided the platform for a review of our practice in order to set students up for success under the new system. The sessions you conducted... really hit the mark with regard to our College agenda and developing teacher capability in delivering a differentiated curriculum.
Thank you again for your work and I look forward to future sessions with our staff.”

"Gerard - your workshop has charged us with the confidence to proceed immediately. We are into it next week! We had the bits and pieces ready to go but just needed the little push and confirmation we were heading in the right direction! Thanks for your help!”

"I just wanted to say how great our staff meeting was yesterday. Eric was so passionate, so enthusiastic. What an amazing teacher/presenter. He had everyone so motivated. I felt encouraged as a teacher. I’m excited."
Kylie Johannessen, Immanuel College, Qld
“Eric's professional development is one of the most valuable I've ever done. He delivers in an engaging manner, listens well and interacts with teachers in a friendly way. Although he is so knowledgeable, he is approachable and humble. There is a lot of teacher participation in his sessions - modelling lessons and discussing outcomes. Back in the classroom, I have had the HOT skills in the forefront of my mind when planning lessons and find that the engagement level of the students is high when these skills are incorporated into the lessons. Students are becoming more creative with their ideas; they are showing tolerance and respect when listening to others and are more confident about justifying their opinions.”
Year 7 teacher, Kimberley Park Primary School, Qld
“In the short nine months since we first met with Eric and started using itc publications’ resources, we have seen some incredibly positive outcomes within the College. Not only have staff embraced itc’s Thinking Skills Framework, there have been many innovative applications of the framework.”
