TEPE Book Series Key Issues in Teacher Education:  Policy, Research and Practice


Together with Brill Publishers, the Teacher Education Policy in Europe Network have taken the initiative to publish a Book Series titled Key Issues in Teacher Education:  Policy, Research and Practice.

The aim of the TEPE Book Series is to inspire and facilitate the dialogue on issues regarding teacher education through the publication of volumes in the Series that cover specific topics that relate to actual discussions on practice, policy and research on teacher education. In this, teacher education is understood broadly as an ongoing process of professional development within the continuum of the teaching profession (initial teacher education – induction – continuing professional development during the career). The support of this ongoing process of professional development aims to facilitate (prospective, novice and experienced) teachers to develop their professional capability in fostering the individual and collective learning needs of pupils and in creating and strengthening learning environments and school environments that are inclusive and democratic, that aim at equity and that are exemplary for an inclusive and democratic society.

Based on this aim and scope, the TEPE Book Series will include separate volumes that address a variety of topics. The coherence of the Series is created by a common focus of each volume that is characterized by:

  • A comparative European (international) perspective cherishing diversity in perspectives and viewpoints;
  • Addressing the continuum of the teacher education;
  • Bridging research, practice and policies;
  • With a focus on the implications for local, national or international policies, practices and research.

Academics that are involved in research, practice or/and policies on teacher education and that are widely recognized as experts in their field are invited to propose new titles within the Book Series by sending a proposal to the Series editors or to Brill. The guidelines for proposals [LINK] are now available.

For any questions, please contact the Series Editors Joanna Madalińska-Michalak, Maria Assunção Flores or Marco Snoek, or Brill’s acquisitions editor Evelien van der Veer.
