“What Teachers Do We Need? Teacher Education Reforms in China”

Dr. Ping Zhao is Assistant Professor of Teacher Education in the Institute of Teacher Education Research, Faculty of Education in Beijing Normal University. Dr. Zhao received her B.A. and M.A. from Beijing Normal University and Ph.D. in a cooperative program between Beijing Normal University and Teachers College, Columbia University. She is currently leading two research projects on Free Teacher Education Policy and preparation of high-­‐quality teachers funded by Beijing Municipal Research Foundation.

In this presentation, Dr. Zhao shares her analysis of the history of teacher

education reforms from early 1990s to the present from the perspectives of institutionalization and teacher credentials, and identifies new challenges China is currently facing. She argues for the importance of de-­‐centralized policy development and implementation processes in order to meet the challenges for preparing the high-­‐quality teaching force for the next generation.
