Issues and developments in teacher education in Commonwealth and other countries

All the key issues discussed in this paper are likely to arise in most countries whether they be member states of the Commonwealth or not. However, as this is a paper which specifically focuses on teacher education and teacher development in the Commonwealth, most of the examples cited in the discussion will arise from member states located in Africa, Asia, Australasia and the northern hemisphere as well as the Caribbean. At times, reference will be made to countries outside the Commonwealth where developments in teacher education have influenced some aspects of teacher training in the Commonwealth.
