    Peter Charles Taylor is Director of the International Transformative Education Research Network (ITERN) and Adjunct Professor of Transformative STEAM Education at Murdoch University, Australia. He has worked in universities for over 3 decades, specialising in research as transformative learning for cultural and environmental sustainability. His integral model of postgraduate research enables professional educators to explore their cultural histories and identities, excavate their cultural values and beliefs, reconceptualize their professional practices, and develop their agency as transformative educators for a glocalising world. His latest book, co-authored with Professor Bal Chandra Luitel, Kathmandu University, is Research as Transformative Learning for Sustainable Futures: Glocal Voices and Visions (2019, Brill/Sense).
