The collection suggests that a way forward for second language teacher preparation programs is through 'reflective practice as innovation'.

Reviews

“Made up of 12 chapters, the book under review is a collection of case studies from different parts of the world. Together, they provide a window on what is happening in the field of teacher education, but, even more importantly, they gesture towards what needs to be done to better address the challenges encountered.” (Kanavillil Rajagopalan, ELT Journal, Vol. 70 (4), October, 2016)

“International Perspectives on English Language Teacher Education: Innovations from the Field is an invaluable source for postgraduate and graduate courses in foreign and second language teaching as well as for researchers in the field of language teaching and learning. … the book is an invaluable source of empirical studies for researchers, teachers, and graduate students interested in improving their teaching and learning practices. ... Undoubtedly, this is a book that provides ‘food for thought’.” (Ana Lucia Simoes Borges Fonseca, LINGUIST List, February, 2016)
