Sammanfattning (abstract):
This project explores the challenges of the nature of current and dominant schooling practices under broader neoliberal conditions. Specifically, the project draws upon the Nordic tradition of educational action research connected to ‘Bildung’ and folk enlightenment as a potential set of alternative theoretical and conceptual resources to guide teachers’ and other educators’ collective learning practices. The project explores the utility of these concepts through research into teacher learning practices, including action research practices of primary teachers in Queensland, Australia, and pre-school teachers in Sweden. In addition, the research also draws upon the insights and learning of a group of principals from Finland, as they discuss their leading practices. In this way, the research employs, and argues for, Bildung-informed conceptions of educational action research which have the capacity to challenge more neoliberal approaches to teachers’ learning and adult education more generally, and seeks to reveal whether and how teacher and adult learning can be practised for sustainability, and to promote collective learning based on democratic values.
