The OECD as Pivot of the Emerging Global Educational Accountability Regime: How Accountable are the Accountants?
This article describes OECD ideological and policy changes that form the background for PISA. Furthermore, the author focuses on the OECD’s governance mechanisms and the obstacles it presents to public scrutiny. The author argues that the pursuit of market mechanisms posed both educational and political problems on the OECD's accountability regime. He argues that in order to redress the asymmetries between strong influence and weak democratic control will require profound advances in the organization of the global public sphere. He proposes to broaden the global educational discourse, in which the accountability narrative is complemented by narratives of local institutional learning, educational tradition, democratic participation, and cultural diversity.

Globalisation and Internationalisation of Teacher Education: A Comparative Case Study of Canada and Greater China
This paper begins with a brief overview of the relationship between globalisation and the internationalisation of higher education. This serves as a backdrop for the focus of the article, which is the internationalisation of teacher education. This comparative case study demonstrates how different globalising processes influence various forms of internationalisation. Comparison also sheds light on the importance of attending not only to broader, global processes, but specific, local contextual factors.

Reflections of a Peace Educator: The Power and Challenges of Peace Education With Pre-Service Teachers
The present study examines one long-standing peace and global education initiative for pre-service teacher candidates. It probes the meanings of peace education and of global education embedded in the program, as well as the program's effects on the pre-service candidates' understandings of peace education. The article discusses two main challenges faced by the core faculty in this peace education program. In particular, teacher candidates' understandings of peace education often seemed limited, especially in relation to their competence in developing curricula for other strands of global education. Second, teacher candidates often had difficulty acquiring the relevant knowledge base and teaching materials necessary for facilitating the complex pedagogies associated with peace education.

Please Mind the Culture Gap: Intercultural Development During a Teacher Education Study Abroad Program
This study explores a preservice teacher’s intercultural development over the course of a semester-long teacher education study abroad program in England. The preservice teacher experienced cultural dissonance during her immersion in the cultural context in England. Her immersion experience provided her with the opportunity to have the experience of being a cultural outsider. The authors conclude that such study abroad programs can be powerful vehicles in teacher educators’ efforts to prepare preservice teachers for work with culturally diverse students.

Preparing Early Childhood Educators for Global Education: The Implications of Prior Learning
This article investigates the prior learning of pre-service early childhood education students in the area of global education, a new curriculum initiative in Australian schools. 65 teacher education students entering the Bachelor of Early Childhood at the University of Western Sydney (UWS) responded to a survey on global education during their orientation programme. The results show that unlike primary and secondary teachers who describe university courses and specific content as reflecting global education; early childhood educators describe global education knowledge and perspectives as representing social processes related to working with young children.

Fact or Fiction? Analyzing Institutional Barriers and Individual Responsibility to Advance the Internationalization of Teacher Education

Through survey of states and content analysis of websites of 409 NCATE accredited institutions, conclusions are drawn regarding institutional commitment to internationalization in teacher education.
