This book is a product of the discourse maturing from a meeting in Hong Kong of the World Assembly of the International Council on Education for Teaching (ICET). The chapters have undergone revisions and exceeded the depths reached at their initial presentations. The theme of the Assembly was ‘Teachers as Learners: Building Communities for Professional Development’. The theme was proposed in the light of the World Assembly the previous year, held in Melbourne, Australia, on ‘Teachers as Leaders: Teacher Education for a Global Profession’. 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.
