This book addressed teachers' necessity to be able to respond to the new needs and demands caused by an ever-evolving educational system, as recognized in the national and international policy and research literature. The book proposes an analysis of the features that shape the journey of the teacher profession and professionalism, a journey which needs to be collaborative, agentive and dialogical:
* Collaborative in changing the personal and professional teacher development from an individual and solitude process toward a joint discovery with mutual enrichment and shared directionality;
* Agentive in the ability to activate internal and external resources for an individual, productive and communicative transformation;
* Dialogical in the ability to enrich the personal narrative with the voices of others and opening spaces for dialogue and listening.
The seven chapters are structured in a way that gives flow and pace to the unfolding story of the developing teacher identity and is informed by a whole range of research and literature. This book serves as a reference point for teacher-students, in-service teachers and teacher educators who are interested in their professional development and looking for new perspectives. It also offers some helpful insights for administrators who need to make ICT decisions on course development in teacher education.
