This volume has arisen from burgeoning international interest in the field of resilience in a variety of educational contexts. It gathers together current thinking, research and practice from international scholars. Over the past 10 years in particular, researchers have focused not only on resilience in significant adversity but also on how students and educators overcome everyday challenges to learn and thrive. The increasing interest in resilience in educational contexts has, in part, stemmed from an increased societal attention to issues of wellbeing and mental health and to broader concerns about issues such as teacher quality and retention in some countries. As a result, both individual researchers and research groups have emerged, making significant contributions to understanding resilience in educational contexts through theory development and empirical studies.
