Teaching in the twenty-first century requires the ability to live with complexity, ambiguity and uncertainty, to be able to hold open possibilities and not look for easy answers to complex issues. Future-oriented teachers will need to be knowledgeable, theoretically grounded, epistemologically aware and professionally reflexive. This chapter demonstrates the impact of playing with pedagogy and understanding how it is shaped by personal epistemologies and ontologies.
