Pressures for reform in teacher education have begun to take on the same sense of urgency as school reform. Those faculties of education who have been strong advocates for change in the schools now find themselves the subject of similar pressures from governmental policy makers. Attempts at change have taken place in many different countries and jurisdictions around the world.; This book details, through a series of international vignettes, how teachers are responding to the changing times and social contexts in which they do their work. The authors hold the view that changes are inevitable in teacher education but what is not clear is who will control the changes and whether the end result will actually improve the preparation of teachers. The theme of the book is that the reform of teacher education should be informed by intelligent debate and that any attempt to restructure teacher preparation should result from a careful reconceptualisation of it purposes and processes.

Among countries in the industrialized world, Canada is the only one without a national department of education, national standards for education, and national regulations for elementary or secondary schooling. For many observers, the system seems impractical and almost incoherent. But despite a total lack of federal oversight, the educational policies of all ten provinces are very similar today. Without intervention from Ottawa, the provinces have fashioned what amounts to a de facto pan-Canadian system. Learning to School explains how and why the provinces have achieved this unexpected result. Beginning with the earliest provincial education policies and taking readers right up to contemporary policy debates, the book chronicles how, through learning and cooperation, the provinces gradually established a country-wide system of public schooling. A rich and ambitious work of scholarship, it will appeal to readers seeking fresh insights on Canadian federalism, education policy, and policy diffusion.

Why is teacher education policy significant - politically, sociologically and educationally? While the importance of practice in teacher education has long been recognised, the significance of policy has only been fully appreciated more recently. Teacher education in times of change offers a critical examination of teacher education policy in the UK and Ireland over the past three decades, since the first intervention of government in the curriculum. Written by a research group from five countries, it makes international comparisons, and covers broader developments in professional learning, to place these key issues and lessons in a wider context.

This edited book is a comparative study on teacher education across ten major Englishspeakingregions of the world (USA, English Canada, England and Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Singapore, Hong Kong, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand). The focus onindividual regions is reflective of a comparative approach with a long tradition goingback to the turn of the twentieth century. This approach is still valid at the present time asit provides one of the best ways of initially structuring our understanding of teachereducation at the macro level in order to facilitate communication of the situation crossnationallyand prepare the way for higher levels of analyses. To this end, the book hastwelve chapters: An introductory chapter details the focus of the book. This is followedby a chapter on each of the ten regions. Each of these chapters, written by an expert in thefield: focuses on general trends in teacher education rather than on any specific aspect of it;focuses primarily on pre-service teacher education at the primary and post-primary levels, although some referenceis also made to continuing professional development;strikes a balance between past, present and future trends;deals broadly with access to, the processes involved in, and the structure of, teacher education;has a unique structure rather than one based upon a formulaic approach.In the final chapter major themes are distilled from the case studies. It also outlines how the book furthers understanding ofteacher education internationally, considers other groupings of regions ripe forconsideration along similar lines, and indicates initiatives arising out of the casestudies worthy of consideration for the improvement of teacher education crossnationally.

"This book aims to enlarge understandings of educational action research. Drawing from complexity theory, deep ecology, Eastern philosophy, hermeneutics, phenomenology, psychoanalysis, postmodernism, and literary theory, the essays in this collection show how participation in educational action research practices requires more of the researcher than the application of research methods. Each essay demonstrates how action research is a lived practice that asks the researcher to not only investigate the subject at hand but, as well, to provide some account of the way in which the investigation both shapes and is shaped by the investigator."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
