(Originally Published in 2007 by Symposium Books)This book seeks to raise the discussion of globalisation's effects on teacher education, development and work,and its reforms and institutions, to a more theoretical and analytical level, and to provide specific examples in thecomparative tradition to illustrate teacher policy in the context of education systems' widespread variability andcomplexity. The contributors critically analyse current arrangements in teacher education, development andwork, and highlight the forces that enter in this contested terrain, the sources of conflict and convergence, and theimplication of these for teaching and learning, and for indigenous forms of knowledge and knowledge constructionin the globalisation era.
