Teacher Education in a Global Context: Towards a Defensible Theory of Teacher Education
Bates, Richard
Journal of Education for Teaching: International Research and Pedagogy, v34 n4 p277-293 Nov 2008
This paper examines some of the effects of globalisation on education and teacher education. In particular it considers the contradictory demands of economic and cultural forms of globalisation, and between globalisation and localisation. Attempts to construct an "education space" in Europe and Asia are considered and various responses of teacher education systems are outlined. A defensible theory of teacher education is presented around the transformation of curriculum, pedagogy, assessment and the practicum: one that might allow a creative response to the contradictions of globalisation.
