This book examines how competing or dissonant worldviews affect the way people learn and organizations change. The cultures of managerialism and performance, the rhetoric of lifelong learning, and the challenges of globalization and international competition create pressures which are unlikely to abate. In every educational sector, teachers and students have to cope with new, complex and often conflicting values and demands.The contributors consider these complex issues in light of national cultures, professional cultures, disciplinary cultures, formal and informal cultures and of cultures past, present and future. They draw on multiple disciplines and discourses - sociocultural studies and cultural psychology, sociology, organizational development, policy studies, management theory, political and economic theory - so as to develop an approach to the complexity of learning today that will enable us to maximize the quality of educational provision for the 21st century."Learning and Teaching where Worldviews Meet" will appeal broadly to educationalists in every discipline and sector and to those working in cultural studies. James Wertsch, Visiting Professor from the University of Washington, provides the Afterword.
