Teacher networks: Today’s and Tomorrow’s Challenges and Opportunities for the Teaching Profession


This book deals with the evolving role of the teaching profession and the role of teacher networks in response to changing skills needs in society. It argues that teachers can be the main change agents for reforms of education, provided that they are well supported and enabled to do so. Recently, various teacher networks have emerged at the local and international scale, and questions around their role in supporting teachers, both in their Initial Teacher Training (ITT) and Continuous Professional Development (CPD), have been raised.
