At a time when social, cultural and linguistic diversity has become a characteristic of education systems around the world, this timely text considers how teacher education is responding to these developments in the context of increased mobilities within and across national boundaries. This collection draws together the work of scholars, from a range of urban, rural and national contexts from the Global South and North, who engage in dialogue about diversity and knowledge exchange. It includes perspectives from multiple contexts using a range of frameworks that cohere around attention to issues of equity and social justice, and focuses on the macro level dynamics (policy, theory, global governance) as well as meso (institutional practices) and micro dimensions (professional identities, cultural, and identity transformation). The authors explore these dynamics and dimensions through mobilities of teachers and students, cosmopolitan theory, indigenous epistemologies, language ecology, professional standards policy discourses, and critical analyses of frameworks including postcolonialism, multiculturalism and culturally responsive and relevant pedagogical approaches.
