So you want to become a primary teacher? Or you are already one and want to revisit your understanding of the two-way traffic between research and practice? Then you have found the right book! We wonder what brought you to this career choice and what kind of teacher you are or want to become. Do you see teaching as a vocation – a craft – a profession?

For instance, do they need:

curriculum deliverers

concept builders

creative practitioners

reflective practitioners

possibility thinkers

passionate, principled pedagogues

artistically engaged professionals?
