Who I am, what I do
Hello, I'm Carly Sawatzki.
I'm a teacher educator and educational researcher in Deakin University's School of Education, and a member of The Centre for Research for Educational Impact (REDI).
As a modern academic, I am a...
I support teachers to teach differently so that their students are ready to live their best life.
I bring people together to work towards achieving Australia's goals for schooling.
I’m an in-demand speaker and writer who makes scholarly ideas accessible and exchangeable.
My thinking informs departments of education, curriculum authorities, and teacher associations.
My workday jam is making change, making laughter, and making a difference.

“I didn't know what I didn't know! This course has given me some of the financial vocabulary and some of the context that I’ve been missing. There are so many new products and services that are vital for students to understand now. Thanks for your engaging presentations and original ideas. I think this is an incredible initiative!”
