A Theory of Teacher Education Network
This paper intends to develop a theory of teacher education network that can enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of teacher education. Reconceptualization of the meaning and process of teacher education provides alternative perspective to understand how teacher can learn from the external context. As nodes or functional units, schools, faculties of education/colleges of education, teacher centers, Education Department, school sponsoring bodies, and educational organizations can be linked to form teacher education networks that can redefine the external context of teacher education, enhance the possibility of teacher education and use resources more efficiently to serve teaches' professional development.
