Ian earned his tenure at three North American universities and secured multiple contract renewals at the prestigious National Institute of Education (NIE), Nanyang Technological University in Singapore in the area of Physical Education for Children and Youth.

Most recently Ian was the inaugural Dean of the Bahrain Teachers College, University of Bahrain (2010-2013) and served two years as the Vice Chancellor of Emirates College for Advanced Education, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (2008-2010). Both colleges were designed on the lines of the NIE in Singapore and as the stand-alone teacher education centre in the country had close ties with the local schools, the regulatory body for education and with the university. This close tripartite relationship is the cornerstone for the success of high performing education systems. 

Professor Haslam is an international speaker and published extensively in the area of instructional leadership in physical education and sport. Recently (2013) with colleagues in the middle east he organized a book on Large Scale School Reform and Social Capital published by Routledge, UK which is based on the premise that you can only a bookimprove student achievement in schools by building social and human capital across the system.

This is exactly what we are trying to do at Cabrillo by seeking to identify the needs and concerns that colleagues have about instruction, by engaging them in creative solutions to effective teaching in diverse classrooms, through capturing their imagination about teaching and learning in the 21stC and where possible by role modeling best practices gleaned locally, nationally and internationally.
