Teacher Education Policy and Practice in Europe provides a critical overview of the current challenges facing teacher education policy and practice in Europe. Drawing on a wide range of contributions, the book demonstrates that in order for teachers to reassume their role as agents of change, it is crucial to create a vision of a future European teacher and promote active engagement in preparing children to live and act in a multicultural and increasingly changing world.

The book suggests ways in which teachers could be prepared to meet and overcome the struggles they will encounter in the classroom, including recommendations for teacher education, which open up new possibilities for policy, practice and research. Considering their own experiences as teachers, contributors also cover topics such as teacher education for the 21st century, the profile of the European teacher, citizenship and identity, social inclusion, linguistic and cultural diversity, and comparative education.

Teacher Education Policy and Practice in Europe is essential reading for academics, researchers and postgraduate students engaged in the study of teacher education, educational policy and educational theory. It should also be of great interest to research-active teacher educators and practising teachers.

Reviews for Teacher Education Policy and Practice in Europe: Challenges and Opportunities for the Future

This book is very timely and makes a significant contribution to the field of teacher education policy and practice in Europe. It is framed by the concept of the 'European teacher' (Schratz, 2010) and is ambitious in its intention to challenge the nationalist tradition that is present to a greater or lesser extent in all education systems across Europe. Ideas of European identity, professionalism and citizenship are central to the vision presented by the contributors to this book. Significant questions are raised about the very purposes of education itself, as well as about the role of teacher education, at a time rising tensions across Europe associated with increased levels of migration and increasing levels of xenophobia. Brian Hudson is Professor of Education and former Head of the School of Education and Social Work (2012-16) at the University of Sussex, UK.
