This paper is focused on the main assumption of the conference that rapid changes and increasing complexity of today’s world are bringing new challenges and growing demands on education systems that are committed to addressing all forms of disparities and inequalities in access, participation and learning outcomes, exclusion and marginalization. This paper provides evidence-based, living-theory answers to the questions on the relevance of these changing perspectives and approaches in research and practice in teacher education and teaching. A living-theory is an individual’s explanation of their educational influences in their own learning, in the learning of others and in the learning of the social formations that influence practice and understanding. The livingtheories drawn on have been created and freely shared from http://www.actionresearch.net/living/living.shtml by educators living and working in diverse cultures and contexts around the world, including South Africa, Canada, Croatia, China, Pakistan and the UK. They share a common cause to contribute to the flourishing of humanity by researching to change their own and influencing other people's perspectives and approaches in contemporary teaching.
