speaker

I love to think out loud with an audience. For more than a decade, I’ve had the privilege of keynoting around the world, on the shifting intersections of education, participatory media, and digital innovation. I also present at academic research conferences (keep scrolling) and lead professional development consultations (see the ‘trainer’ tab). My talks are interactive, always tailored to the context I’m addressing, and thus far I have not had a single tomato thrown at me. 😉

If you’d like to invite me to speak at your event, email bstewart@uwindsor.ca for rates and availability.
