I’m Brett Kingsbury and I’m a Head of Biology teaching in a school in Norwich.

I’ve been teaching for over 10 years now but far too many of those were spent with my head in the sand. The last couple of years have seen me engage with the world of evidence-informed practice and the principles of cognitive science and it’s not hyperbolic to say it has revolutionised and re-energised my teaching.

I would thoroughly recommend getting involved in the CogSciSci community, details of which can be found at @cogscisci on Twitter, through Adam Boxer’s introductory blog or through the new website.

I’m also a founding member of @chatbiology on Twitter. We are dedicated to sharing resources, articles, blogs etc. on biological education. We also have a weekly Twitter chat on Tuesday’s at 8.30pm with a new focus each week. Come join the chat using #chatbiology!
