About this book

This book offers a theoretically and empirically robust account of what is known about the effective approaches that translate theory to practice in teacher education, presenting evidence from case studies from a diverse range of contexts informed by various methodological foundations. It also provides accounts that support teacher educators involved in both school and university based teacher education.

The book offers insights into the translation of theory to practice from the long history of teacher education, the benefit of diverse approaches in terms of the effectiveness of initial teacher education, and the impact of professional standards.
