Faculty Book: Nicholas Michelli

Edited by Nicholas Michelli, Robin Dada, Deborah Eldridge, Rana M. Tamim, and Karen Karp Teacher Quality and Teacher Education Quality: Accreditation from a Global Perspective Routledge (2017)

Accreditation of teacher education programs is increasingly embraced internationally and is being modeled after the American experience, despite criticisms from some in the field of teacher education in the United States. This book examines the transformation of accreditation and the interest and perception of nations and regions choosing to use the model in their own culture, including the Middle East and Gulf Region, South America, and the United Kingdom. Its distinctive edge is the juxtaposition of three sectors: quality assurance/accreditation, teacher preparation, and global/international experiences. The authors address how the adoption of a universal requirement for accreditation embraces a particular view of what teacher quality means. The experiences and voices of teacher educators as international colleagues in a global climate of accountability brings a fresh perspective on shared challenges.

Nicholas Michelli is Presidential Professor of Urban Education at the Graduate Center and University Dean of Teacher Education at the City University of New York.
