Teaching practices respond to the prompts, resources and inherent potential of a school’sphysical, social and cultural landscape. This study involved how teachers adapt their practice in response to contemporary fexible learning environments. An Australian case studyfocused on how teachers framed and enacted changes in practice by perceiving action possibilities of the fexible environment and (re)confguring the classroom environment overtime through their professional agency. An enactment model of teacher adaptation is proposed, based on the case study and the relevant literature. The model suggests that thephases in the adaptation process are awareness, experimentation and coherence.
