Morrice argues that transnational migration is a mundane and inevitable part of living in our globalised world, and that it requires more creative pedagogical understandings and responses than currently offered. The turn to values and identity in migration and integration debates has co-opted lifelong learning, in the form of language and citizenship education, to support and manage the immigration priorities of nation states. Through an exploration of transnationalism and the concept of transnational spaces, an alternative framing is offered which recognises the ongoing and inevitable re-inscription of national, cultural and individual identities. It is suggested that migration gives rise to an everyday pedagogy of spontaneous, embodied and unpredictable learning. Broad pointers to the role of the educator and researcher in exploring and shaping these processes are offered.
