PLD Leader - Professor of Flight: Dr Craig Hansen

Dr Craig has 30+ years of creative leadership experience in education, both in Aotearoa and internationally (seen here in Jakarta leading one training for the Google Educator Group of West Jakarta).

With a strong, proven history of professional development (past ICT Cluster Director, Principal of Educational Technology etc.), Craig leads with passion and skill when relating with teachers, board members and community. Drone Legends is the largest STEM.org approved flight programme in North America, now in Aotearoa. Craig launched Drone Legends in a South Auckland Alternative Education centre.

With incredible engagement, communication with whanau and integration with both NCEA Achievement Standards & primary curriculum Craig has developed a highly dynamic, attention-grabbing initiative. With a PhD in the Creative Industries, Craig's thesis focused on how to ensure graduates are the MOST successful they can be when they enter the world of work. Craig's research was motivated by his years as Principal of Lifeway College, which held the distinction of being New Zealand's leading animation school with the highest graduate success rate.
