This presentation explores how co-constructing visions might engage teachers as inquirers in a majority world context by reflecting upon sixteen Appreciative Inquiry workshops I co-facilitated involving over 50 Nepali musician-teachers in the Kathmandu Valley in 2016. It extends the Anglo-American concept of teachers’ visions (Hammerness, 2004) through Indian-born socio-cultural anthropologist Arjun Appadurai’s notions of the imagination (1996) and the social and cultural capacity to aspire (2004). In the presentation, I will reflect on the processes that took place when co-constructing visions, including the ways co-constructing visions may have been the fuel for action, and analyse the implications of the resulting co-constructed visions. The findings highlight the importance of developing and supporting collaborative learning for the development of both preservice and inservice music teacher education.
