Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


Why are policies regarding teacher education politically, sociologically, and educationally significant? While teacher education as a practice has long been recognized, the importance of teacher education policy has only recently begun to be appreciated. Teacher Education in Times of Change offers a critical examination of teacher education policy in the United Kingdom and Ireland over the past three decades, since the first intervention of government in the curriculum in 1984. Written by a research group from five countries, it makes international comparisons and covers broader developments in professional learning, placing these key issues and lessons in a wider context.
