Abstract

This chapter explores ways to reconstruct stronger ties between an educators' professional identity to Aristotle's held view of the importance played by “civic friendship” to the common good of democracies nurtured and sustained by education. Virtual environments offer benefits for supporting the development of an educators' professional identity around the common good by means of sustained “in situ” deliberations and engagement with the transcendent (nonmaterial) aspects of virtues in practice.
