Teacher education faces challenges that are immediate and demanding. Adapting teacher education to the changing needs of educational systems is an imperative. This book offers engaging, thoughtful, and sometimes provocative ways of engaging in the debate around what is and can be in teacher education. This book responds to such things as the economic limitations associated with “fast track” routes to teacher certification, while also considering challenges such as the introduction of technology, teaching core instructional practices, as well as the place and nature of teacher education in preparing teachers for an ever-changing world.
