Teachers as Learners: Building an Alternative Landscape
In the first chapter, teaching is defined as that which involves a complex understanding and enactment of the interrelatedness between pedagogy, context and astute decision making. This thinking is positioned within the personal experience of the author who has worked as both a teacher and a professional learning facilitator. This chapter begins to define the local context which gave rise to and determined a need for research to rethink the role of the teacher in the professional learning experience. It flags that the changes that emerged ultimately required all involved in the process of learning to think and work differently.
