Welcome to Dr Beardface’s blog

Welcome to my blog. My name is Greg Thompson, I am an academic at an Australian university. Prior to that I worked as a secondary teacher, mainly in the English and History subject areas. I have a background in History, Literature and Philosophy.
I aim to post on education matters, specifically relating to policy, assessment, teachers’ work and philosophy for education.
And call out edu-stupidity, so there’s plenty to do.

Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.
