In the worldwide movements of educational reform, educators are forging new roles, identities and relationships. Leadership is vital, but must be rooted in the capacity for learning. This volume responds to the tensions and paradoxes brought by educational reforms, presenting a critical discourse on teachers as learners. The contributions bring an array of cultural settings and methodological orientations, and reveal contextual burdens that teachers should not carry in isolation. Teachers’ learning demands collective engagement to turn challenges into opportunities in a sustainable quest for higher goals. The discourse concludes with a vision for a new relationship among educational workers as a joint force of learners in a cross-boundary endeavor for moral commitment to education.
