This book gathers a range of contributions from researchers and practitioners across borders with an emphasis on theoretical arguments and empirical data concerning teacher empowerment. It propels readers to explore powerful teaching practices that can further advance the profession as a continuing priority in the system when appropriately utilized. Further, it strives to capture teachers' readiness to improve their professional skills and responsive practices as a form of accountability for their teaching and students' learning, two aspects that are increasingly being judged by various stakeholders. The book argues that teachers' autonomous participation and engagement in relevant decision-making activities and equitable access to continuing professional development opportunities are and should remain major priorities.
