English Teacher-Deira International School
David Keating hails from Cork City in the Republic of Ireland. He has been working in international education for over eight years as both a secondary school English teacher and Education Consultant. David is particularly interested in teacher observation culture in schools, which was the subject of his Master’s thesis for his MBA in Educational Leadership. This program also inspired him to investigate the impact of technology in the classroom and digital pedagogy and led to writing “Looking in the Post-Covid Crystal Ball: Utopian and dystopian possibilities for Dubai private schools offering synchronous blended learning.” This co-authored piece won an “Outstanding Paper Award” at the TCC Online Conference hosted by the University of Hawaii. David is currently working as an English teacher in Deira International School in Dubai.
