In this article we focus on what we have learnt from doing teacher education workshops in Burma/Myanmar with an inspiring group of trainers of trainers working in non-state education (aka non-formal education). These trainers are active in monastic schools and education and development NGOs. In this article we trace the development of our involvement in these workshops and explore how we have come to understand the “active reflective learning” approach that we take as a process of working towards a creative sense of critical literacy rather than purely skills training. Specifically we consider the complex but minimum scaffolds we used for different workshops and also look at questions of multilingualism in such in-service education.
