Transforming teacher education: professionalism for a changing world


This article provides an introduction to a reform in undergraduate teacher education at Moray House School of Education, University of Edinburgh. The reformed courses are based on principles of Problem-Based Learning (PBL) and other student-centred methods, and involve a restructuring of teaching and learning, and new forms of assessment. The article draws on an early stage of evaluation, based on student comments and a sample of final assessments, in order to compare the reformed course with its predecessor.
