This chapter explores the scholarship of teacher education and offers challenges to researchers in teacher education who pursue educational change. As we consider how we might cultivate change, we contemplate the importance of the particular – the particular student, the particular teacher, and the particular classroom – rather than the small view of big data (Greene, 1995) and the “teaching as telling and learning as listening culture” as the way to address educational change. With that in mind we explore related scholarship through an international lens to recognize how we might open our approach to this scholarship and bring forward possible alternatives to traditional notions of international teacher education.
