* How can educators develop new forms of professionalism required by changing conditions? * How can useful lessons be drawn from failure, as well as success? * What can be learned from best management practice in commerce and industry? *And, crucially, how do educators ensure that education's most precious resource - the people who provide it - learn from experience in order to continue giving their best? This book examines what actually happens, as well as what ought to happen, in the quest for best practice in education. It investigates the experiences of educators and teachers, in their continuous quest to improve the quality of learning and teaching provision. It provides rich case studies from a range of different educational settings in the UK and Australia which reveal how educational leaders and practitioners are handling new priorities and programmes for change.
