Teacher education in Europe: main characteristics and developments.

Boek

Marco Snoek en Irena Zogla hebben het inleidende hoofdstuk verzorgd van het boek Becoming a Teacher educator: Theory and practice for teacher educators. In dit eerste hoofdstuk wordt de context van lerarenopleidingen en de generieke hoofdkenmerken van het stelsel van lerarenopleidingen in de meeste Europese landen uitgewerkt. Chapter 2 offers a more detailed description of teacher education in the United Kingdom, Israel and the Netherlands. In this chapter, we reflect on some of the issues that define teacher education, and we try to identify choices that are made in different countries and the differences and similarities in structures and approaches that are a result of these choices. To structure our reflections, we use a comparative framework focusing on: The system of teacher education The content of teacher education The pedagogy of teacher education The role of stakeholders on the macro, meso and micro level We end the chapter with a reflection on the role and position of teacher education and teacher educators in educational policies.
