Stephen Kemmis, Karin Rönnerman, Christine Edwards Groves At a time in history in which the aspirations for transforming the conditions for education are being pressured by a “performative audit culture” (Comber & Nixon, 2011, p. 168), educators across the globe have become increasingly locked into regimes of standardisation, managerialism, accountability and performativity. The Pedagogy, Education and Praxis (PEP) network is a grassroots organisation that emerged in response to these contemporary conditions. The PEP network is comprised of an international community of scholars who regularly meet in a range of forums to engage in dialogues and research aiming to study the conditions that enable and constrain the conduct and development of educational practice. These dialogues have extended for more than a decade (2005-2015), allowing PEP researchers to engage with one another across intellectual, educational, cultural and social traditions; and as a collective, challenge the bureaucratization and de-professionalization of education eroding the moral, social and political commitments that inform educational practice in the countries involved. Our work is motivated by a resolve to improve practice through local action research initiatives and trans-national collaborations as “resources for action and hope” (Smith, Edwards-Groves, & Brennan-Kemmis, 2010, p. 7) that contribute to local site based education development in our own countries and work contexts.
