Abstract

The originality of Sadruddin Bahadur Qutoshi's thesis is focused on a transformative teacher education programme for Pakistan and a living-educational-theory that includes reflexivity, inclusive logics, multiple genres and multiple ways of knowing. The originality is consistent with what de Sousa Santos (2014) is calling for as ‘ecologies of knowledges’ as a response to the hegemonic influences of a ‘Western’ epistemology. This thesis offers five transformative visions for teacher education and research practices in Pakistan:
1. A living-educational-theory of inclusive co-leadership with embodied values of intention of doing good for others, humility for humanity, care of self and others with ecological consciousness, love and peace;
2. The use of a metaphor of montage in conceiving a liberating view of curriculum;
3. Critical-creative pedagogies for an empowering view of education;
4. A holistic view of authentic-developmental assessment;
5. An innovative-integral view of transformative research.
