Abstract

Over the past few decades, teacher education programmes worldwide have experienced greater scrutiny than ever before in the form of government initiatives, mandated policy and critical reports (Edwards, Gilroy, and Hartley 2002). Examples of recent government initiatives and mandates include the Australian government reforming higher education, the French teacher education programmes experiencing a major overhaul, and the government-driven changes to teacher education in England. Examples of reform efforts include the Scottish Teachers for a New Era in Scotland and the Carnegie Teachers for a New Era in the USA (Hobson et al. 2005). Interestingly enough, many of these reforms have taken place with little to no public discussion or debate (Ellis 2009).
