Within educational research that seeks to understand the quality and effectiveness of teachers and school, the role emotions play in educational change and school improvement has become a subject of increasing importance. In this book, scholars from around the world explore the connections between teaching, teacher education, teacher emotions, educational change and school leadership. (For this text, “teacher” encompasses pre-service teachers, in-service teachers and headteachers, or principals). New Understandings of Teacher’s Work: Emotions and Educational Change is divided into four themes: educational change; teachers and teaching; teacher education; and emotions in leadership. The chapters address the key basic and substantive issues relative to the central emotional themes of the following: teachers’ lives and careers in teaching; the role emotions play in teachers’ work; lives and leadership roles in the context of educational reform; the working conditions; the context-specific dynamics of reform work; school/teacher cultures; individual biographies that affect teachers’ emotional well-being; and the implications for the management and leadership of educational change, and for development, of teacher education.

"Clifford H. Edwards presents a convincing case for the power of learning communities to more genuinely reflect the nature of the broader American society and to more authentically empower students as learners. How else can it be than the means necessarily being consistent with the ends? `Shades of John Dewey,' you might say! Yes, but more validly, the research findings of Jean Piaget and Lev Vygotsky are extensively actualized---that is, knowledge is constructed by the individual child/learner while immersed in a social context, whether family or school. Traditional education has always ignored how children truly learn, resulting in very limited learning outcomes---while the classroom itself has often been a scene of contrary wills between teacher and student."---Lary M. Arnoldsen, EdD, emeritus professor of secondary education, Brigham Young University --

"How many teachers (including academics) understand the dynamic relationship between learning and teaching? In this highly readable account of teacher learning for educational change, Hoban provides both the theory and the detailed examples for a rich and engaging new perspective on teachers' professional learning. This is essential reading for all who would improve their own teaching or provide meaningful support and leadership for such teachers." - Tom Russell, Professor of Education, Queen's University (Canada) "Hoban pays careful attention to the dynamic interplay between personal, social and situated conditions for learning in his Professional Learning System by valuing extended time frames and learning communities in his quest for real teacher change. But beyond his theory, persuasive arguments and compelling examples is the learning through reflection that he embodies himself in this book. A wonderful read." - J. John Loughran, Faculty of Education, Monash University, Australia This book presents a new mindset for teacher learning and educational change. When viewed from a conventional mechanistic paradigm, educational change is a linear step-by-step process that is supported by a simplistic approach to teacher learning. Although this approach often produces disappointing results, rarely is an alternative one proposed. What is new in this book is that educational change and teacher learning are viewed from a paradigm based on complexity theory, assuming that change is a nonlinear process that needs to be supported by a framework for long-term teacher learning. The central question of this book, therefore, is 'What conditions will help to establish a framework for long-term teacher learning to support educational change?' To address this question, a systems thinking approach is used to draw together ideas from existing learning perspectives into a new theoretical framework called a Professional Learning System. This framework is not a formula, but a new mindset to help us understand the nonlinear dynamics of educational change and teacher learning.
