  4. 4. What’s the future for Teacher Education in Europe? - What is the nature of Teacher Education? - What is/ are the role(s) of research? - What is the nature of quality in this regard? - How can and do we evaluate quality in teachereducaflon?
  5. 5. Teacher Education: -First local provider of higher education -Designed for national purposes and often locally colored Secondly — defined as outside the emerging modern higher education system L Thirdly - integrated into the higher education with restrictions as being “foreign”
  6. 6. As Teacher Education TE) is an integrated part of higher education (HE , the future conditions and thereby challenges for TE is the same as for HE As HE has to respond to societal demands and demands from individual citizens in terms of education for individual endeavour so has TE “J: |‘rl ‘‘. »7*. r~ ‘ Societal level r'i, .”}"-_)F . "y, k 2‘ '! ‘,'J Individual level L .3" A * .1.. - . ‘ -Reproduction I Existential -Renewal Emancipation -Sustainability I Employability
  7. 7. As a part of HE, TE needs to develop and rely on the same quality assurance system as in HE, demanding same quality standards (, levels, structures and procedures) As a professional education, TE needs to identify quality in terms of professional capabilities and skills on top of general quality requirements (content)
  8. 8. Quality evaluation of Swedish HE focus weaknesses as: * Related to mass HE ~ Declining o Related to Shortage of in’lel'nati0na| iSatiOn/ funding/ drive for m0bi“tY external funding - Under prepared creating dependencies incoming students (and and erosion of outgoing ? ) academic freedom and .

  10. 10. Current analysis in US: i In an era when knowledge is the key to future - In an economy where every enterprise is challenged to innovate or be displaced ~ In a democracy that is diverse, globally engaged, and dependent on citizen responsibility i In a world of daunting complexity * In a period of relentless change What sort of College Education is then necessary? For TEPE — what sort of TE should we promote?
