Welcome to ollielovell.com. I’ve created this website as a place to store and share resources and thoughts on education, learning and living.
Hi, I’m Oliver (Ollie) Lovell. I’m inspired by making connections in and about education. I love it and I savour every opportunity to participate in a shared learning experience.
This year is my first year as head of senior maths at a Secondary College on the land of the Kulin nation in Melbourne’s West. I’m enjoying the challenge and am grateful to be working with a group of passionate and capable teachers.
I also do some work with the University of Tasmania on their mathematics bridging course by distance, I’m involved with the Mathematics Association of Victoria as a councillor, I work with the Australian College of Educators as their Victorian early career representative, and I’m a Google Certified Educator.
Two initiatives that I’m excited to be starting this year are the Education Reading Room podcast as well as the Teacher Ollie’s Takeaways podcast (link coming soon, just about to launch!). It’s my hope that both of these initiatives will further build and contribute to the education community in Victoria, Australia, and maybe even globally.
At the moment my main area of interest with respect to education is the science of learning and I’m working to get my head more firmly around the cognitive principles that underlie successful education.
Feel free to contact me any time on twitter @ollie_lovell or via email firstname.lastname@example.org
