Abstract

To understand the accounts of practice and the theories that draw attention to the sociality and situatedness of practices presented in this volume, we take up the challenge of reflecting critically and concisely on the present state and the relevance of practice theory in education research. We do this by writing the chapter in the form of a Rundbriefe (“round letters”). The Rundbriefe process enables us, as the authors, to respond as both individuals and as a collective authorial team to these key questions: (1) How does a practice turn enhance our understandings of practices in education? (2) How does the various practice theories talk to one another? (3) What does a practice perspective make visible or leave invisible? (4) In what ways does practice theory help us to understand praxis, diversity and contestation ? Our writings circulate around the editorial team members of this book each inviting the other to respond and to deliberate further, coming together in the final section to make concluding comments.
