Abstract

This is a historical case study on the development of teacher education in Hong Kong during the decade from 1992 to 2002, the transition period from being a colony to self-government. This development is illustrated by the case of the Hong Kong Institute of Education (HKIEd) and its forerunners. This development is identified within broad historical and global context. References on the development of teacher education in different era are drawn from other countries and compared to those in Hong Kong. While the overall changes in teacher education in the HKIEd were gigantic and radical, many issues remain unresolved and new problems have emerged. Some of these problems are unique to Hong Kong; some have their counterparts in other countries.
