Community participation in schools is still a challenge for many teachers around the world, although research has demonstrated its positive impact for children’s learning and school improvement. How do teachers develop ways to strengthen the relationship with the community? What facilitates a dialogic school-home relationship?

This seminar will address these questions by exploring teacher leadership practices for community participation. Drawing on teachers´ accounts, the purpose is to discuss common trends that enable teachers to develop strategies that achieve impact beyond the school. Taking advantage of the existence of the HertsCam network and the International Teacher Leadership initiative, we will reflect on how teacher leadership enables social transformation through the work with families and the community.
