Co-Published by Routledge/Taylor & Francis Group and the Association of Teacher Educators.
The Handbook of Research on Teacher Education was initiated to ferment change in education based on solid evidence. The publication of the First Edition was a signal event in 1990. While the preparation of educators was then - and continues to be - the topic of substantial discussion, there did not exist a codification of the best that was known at the time about teacher education. Reflecting the needs of educators today, the Third Edition takes a new approach to achieving the same purpose. Beyond simply conceptualizing the broad landscape of teacher education and providing comprehensive reviews of the latest research for major domains of practice, this edition:
stimulates a broad conversation about foundational issues
brings multiple perspectives to bear
provides new specificity to topics that have been undifferentiated in the past
includes diverse voices in the conversation.
The Editors, with an Advisory Board, identified nine foundational issues and translated them into a set of focal questions:
What's the Point?: The Purposes of Teacher Education
What Should Teachers Know? Teacher Capacities: Knowledge, Beliefs, Skills, and Commitments
Where Should Teachers Be Taught? Settings and Roles in Teacher Education
Who Teaches? Who Should Teach? Teacher Recruitment, Selection, and Retention
Does Difference Make a Difference? Diversity and Teacher Education
How Do People Learn to Teach?
Who's in Charge? Authority in Teacher Education
How Do We Know What We Know? Research and Teacher Education
What Good is Teacher Education? The Place of Teacher Education in Teachers' Education.
The Association of Teacher Educators (ATE) is an individual membership organization devoted solely to the improvement of teacher education both for school-based and post secondary teacher educators. For more information on our organization and publications, please visit: www.ate1.org
