Teacher Education in a Transnational World brings together specialists from various disciplines and scholars with policy-making and high-level government and administrative experience to discuss the historical, sociological, and philosophical issues associated with teacher education in a global context.

Edited by Rosa Bruno-Jofré and James Scott Johnston, two leading scholars of the history and philosophy of education, this collection offers both analytical and practical insights into the present and future state of teacher education. Among the topics examined are paradigmatic changes in teacher education, the impact of the Bologna process in Europe, Indigenous education, and state policies in a transnational context.

With contributors from nine countries on four continents, Teacher Education in a Transnational World offers a genuinely international interdisciplinary examination of the challenges and opportunities associated with teacher education in the twenty-first century.
