Abstract: We present a comparative analysis of professional learning communities (PLC) of teachers in Canada, China, and India, in the context of a project called the Critical Action Learning Exchange (CALE). CALE is an international community of educators dedicated to designing, enacting and sharing critical action curricula that empower students in responding to complex socio-environmental issues such as climate change, social justice, pandemics, and more (Carvalho et al., 2021). We analyze the three PLCs through the lens of activity-theoretical formative intervention research (Engeström et al., 2014). Comparison of the three cases identifies a series of key factors for the successful professional development of critical action educators and informs the design of future CALE elements.
