NOKUT International Advisory Panel on Teacher Education in Norway (2016-present)

COMING IN APRIL/MAY, 2020, the report from this panel. Chaired by Dr. Marilyn Cochran-Smith and composed of international scholars in teacher education, the Norwegian Agency for Quality Assurance in Education (NOKUT) International Advisory Panel on Teacher Education in Norway was established in connection with the Norwegian government’s introduction of five-year integrated master’s programs for primary and lower secondary education. The purpose of the advisory group is to help ensure that this change in degree structure results in high quality educational experiences for teacher candidates. The advisory group also has a broader task: to help further improve teacher education at the primary and lower secondary levels by describing how to improve Norwegian teacher education institutions overall.
