The array of authors in this book, from all levels of education, provides a wonderful series of lenses by which to 'see' the complex field of teacher education. I particularly appreciated the range of foci from what is innovative and new in teacher education, through how to better utilize what is already known, to challenges and contexts that require more attention. A good read for those seeking the insights of many that work within and seek to further teacher education. -- Mark Hirschkorn, University of New Brunswick This book is vast and offers the reader an erudite study of the complexity of teacher education today. Compelling in its Canadian content, enriched by its international scope and guided throughout by a respect for evidence, this book proffers insights and ideas that speak to the challenges in teacher education today. It is both thought-provoking and practical, energizing and hopeful. This ambitious resource will be of enormous benefit to me as a teacher educator and to the pre and in-service teachers with whom I engage in this complicated endeavour we call teaching. -- Fiona J. Benson, McGill University
