This chapter proposes a broader envisioning of education and its transformative potential. The chapter builds a productive picture of the elements that contribute to learning. To truly harness the transformative power of education requires courageous conversations about educationís potential, not just in Australia but globally. Noting the complexity of the issues, the chapter argues for a deep engagement in understanding educational success and how to enable it. The knowledge dissemination and translation strategies of key institutional agents need to be supported to engage multiple players, across multiple disciplines. The chapter situates the contributions in the book as an important element of a transformational agenda.
