EDiTE Conference Volume: European Perspectives in Transformative Education


It is with great pleasure that we announce the edited conference volume, “European Perspectives in Transformative Education,” which is a result of the international conference, held in Wrocław, on June 19th–June 20th. The conference and this publication are an integral part of the European Doctorate in Teacher Education (EDiTE) project.

In this volume you will find both individually and collectively written papers by the EDiTE researchers that reflect the results of the first year of their research within the EDiTE framework. PART I of the volume contains three collectively elaborated analyses of the three components of the EDiTE theme, Transformative Teacher Learning for Better Student Learning within an Emerging European Context. These papers are based on a complex and challenging joint effort of international teams of EDiTE researchers, who over the course of several months carried on an internal survey, analysis, and discussion concerning the common understanding of the EDiTE research theme. In the PART II the authors were given freedom in choosing themes and co-authors of their papers. The effect is a rich mosaic of focus and scope of interests that aptly mirror the diversity of the EDiTE community.
