The Future of Teacher Education

Innovations across Pedagogies, Technologies and Societies


Volume Editors: and
Twenty-first century processes, such as globalization and digitization, pose various challenges for primary, secondary, and post-secondary teacher education at both the formal and informal education levels. These challenges are addressed by innovators in the field of teacher education, i.e. teacher educators, pre-service teachers, in-service teachers, scholars and policy-makers. This edited volume explores future trends in three different spheres of teacher education: 1) pedagogies (emotive, reflective, cognitive, and didactic practices), 2) technologies (digital competencies, artificial intelligence in teaching, and the transformative potential of digital tools in intercultural learning), and 3) societies (multilingualism, attitudes towards literacies, societal polarization, and teacher shortages). The suggested innovations aim to bridge the gap between theory and practice by drawing upon the critical evaluation of theoretical approaches as well as the discussion of best practice examples. The chapters are situated in various countries, such as Vietnam, Canada, Argentina, Spain, Germany, the USA, Switzerland, Sweden, Italy, and, as a transnational cooperation, Palestine and the UK. The Future of Teacher Education: Innovations across Pedagogies, Technologies and Societies considers various models of teacher education (e.g. reflective model, competency-based model, etc.) and applies a multitude of different research methods (e.g. didactic analysis of teaching material, thematic analysis of reflections, etc.).

Pascal Hohaus studied English and Political Sciences as part of a teacher training degree at Leibniz University Hannover. His doctoral dissertation Subordinating Modalities: A Quantitative Analysis of Syntactically Dependent Modal Verb Constructions (J. B. Metzler, 2020) applies construction grammar to the use of modal verbs in subordinate clauses. He co-edited Re-Assessing Modalising Expressions: Categories, Co-text, and Context (John Benjamins, 2020) and recently he edited Science Communication in Times of Crisis (John Benjamins, 2022). Further research interests include the interplay of teaching and research and applying linguistics to the teaching of foreign languages.
