image This book presents a number of the final outcomes of the TeLLNet project and outlines the main challenges and opportunities for the development of teacher networks today and in the future. It is intended for policy and decision makers in education, and attempts to offer both reflective tools and means to build policies that support and enable teachers in the role of change agents in reforming education.

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.
