The introductory chapter acts as a guide and bridging device for the reader in their navigation of this volume. It describes how the project was conceived and constructed and then analyses and synthesises its major themes in response to the question ‘Where does theory come from’ in the research and practices of its nine contributors. It proposes that these practices can usefully be characterised as ‘pedagogies of change’ whereby distinct theories, methods and tools emerge in response to contemporary issues and concerns that are largely shared across the cultures and contexts of the authors. This in turn has particular inferences for future educational research, practice and policy.
