Globalization and Educational Reform in German Teacher Education
Blomeke, Sigrid
International Journal of Educational Research, v45 n4-5 p315-324 2006
For almost 200 years German teacher education has remained relatively stable in its core characteristics. In this paper, the present process of fundamental change is analyzed with regard to consequences for the structure of teacher education, accountability mechanisms, and the concepts of the ideal teacher. The implementation of Bachelor and Master degrees as well as of explicit and implicit accountability mechanisms support the thesis of borrowing global ideas to push local interests. The changes go along with a new concept of the ideal teacher.
