Abstract

Preface:
The chapters in this book use the idea of a myth as the organizing principle and as a springboard for analysis of teaching, learning, practice, theory and research across a range of educational and cultural contexts. The origin of this collection lies with a symposium hosted by the (then) Faculty of Education at the University of Southern Queensland in 2011. Since then, however, our call for papers and the range of contributors have brought together a global breadth and depth of contributions addressing current practice, policy and a range of principles in education. The collection includes chapters based on
extensive empirical research alongside more theory-led explorations of education. Contexts and settings range from Europe to the Middle East and Australia to the borderless realms of online education, or is the notion of borderlessness in the latter indeed a myth ... ? Among a variety of methodological approaches and national educational priorities and challenges, the authors grapple with not only the pervasive but also animating notion of a myth, sometimes as something which is a generative and positive force but at other times taking myth to suggest limitations in both thought and practice.
