A collaborative series with the University of Cambridge Faculty of Education, drawing practical insights from international research. The Cambridge Education Research series publishes in three strands. The Teacher Education strand provides a re-examination of aspects of national and international teacher education systems or analysis of contextual examples of innovative practice. The International Education Reform strand examines the global and country-specific moves to reform education and teacher development. Books in the Language Education strand address the multilingual context of education in different national and international settings.
