The issue of quality of training in higher education establishments has been and remains the cornerstone for the effective functioning of industries, businesses and banks, the development of science, culture, education and society in general. Graduate student should be competitive in the job market. This means that they should not only get a good education, but also be willing and able to further self-improvement. To solve this problem it is important to discuss the comprehensive and diverse scientific basis of ensuring the quality of higher education, to review the results of scientific studies and the experience of higher education in various countries. The unanswered questions are: the definition of the concept of "quality of higher education", criteria and indicators of quality education, diagnostic tools, methods of monitoring the quality of education, ways and means of improving the educational process in Universities , the correlation of the quality education with higher education management and so on. In a special issue of the journal, we plan to deal with both - theoretical studies and practical achievements of scientific and educational community.

Teacher education is an integral part of education. It is the spotlight of the 21st century. The teacher occupies a pivotal position in the system of education. Teacher plays an important role as friend, philosopher, guide and helper of the student. The teacher is the backbone of the educational system, maker of the mankind and architect of the society. Thus the role of the teachers is very important in making the nation. The success of education depends on quality of teacher which creates excellence in all walks of life. The qualitative aspects of education depend entirely on the character and personality of the teachers. The American Commission on Teacher Education rightly observes, “The quality of its citizens depends not exclusively, but in critical measure upon the quality of their education. The quality of their education depends more than upon any single factor upon the quality of their teacher”. The National Policy on Education in India (1986) has rightly said, “The status of the teacher reflects the socio-cultural ethos of a society; it is said that no people can rise above the level of its teachers”. Teacher education is that knowledge, skill and ability which as relevant to the life of a teacher. If we throw the light on the Teacher Education Programme in all over the world we would see that a remarkable growth occurred in the field of Teacher Education. At the same time Teacher Education is losing its identity in so many countries. Teacher Education in various countries has been struggling to strengthen its identity. Struggle does not mean degeneration of values and degeneration of institutions. It is true that after persistent struggle there is evident improvement, but, still there is no end to perfection. There are many issues and challenges pertaining to Teacher Education Programme like Policy dilemma, Professional development, Quality Research, Academic Staff Development, E-learning and Teacher Education, ICT and Teacher education, Quality Management in Teacher education, Teacher education in 21st Century, Teacher education Global perspective etc. Teacher Education should be so powerful and graceful that nobody should dare to dictate. It is high time to revive and strengthen the Teacher Education Programme in all over the world.
This special Issue aims, therefore,
• To explore the current Issues and Challenges in the field of Teacher Education in various countries’ in the world. • To share innovative ideas for the qualitative development of teacher education.• To analyze the changing context of teacher education in the global scenario. • To know the development of teacher education during various periods and examine its relevance today.• To find out the curricula and courses for teacher education in different countries of the world.• To ascertain the special features of the Teacher Education system in various countries.• To know the agencies involved in the continuing professional teacher development (CPTD).• To know the structure of Teacher Education Programme at various levels of education in different countries.• To know the issues and problems of teacher education.• To analyze the incentives given to teachers to work towards their professional development.• To know the quality indicators for teacher education.• To know the significance of E-learning in Teacher Education.• To know the significance of ICT in Teacher Education

Learner centered approach calls for teaching that focuses on student learning rather than on what the teacher is doing. It changes the focus from what the teacher does to student learning. This means that it is not one specific teaching method. The aim of this special issue is to solicit for papers that will present reviews and scientific findings that determine learner centered approach as a factor in student preparedness in academic achievement. This issue will attract audience from teachers, educators, curriculum experts, students and policy makers.

In the full XXIst century, the initial formation of the teachers must be tackled from different points of view and ambiences of study and investigation given the heteregeneus competences that these teachers will have to transmit to his futures learners. In this sense, our intention is to offer a set of scientific studies that offer different routes to rethink the roll of the teacher at present whose formation must be tackled, undoubtedly, from the interdisciplinarity and the transdisciplinarity of contents and ways of learning that they help these teachers to answer with guarantees of success to the challenges that nowadays our society demands. This way, an initial formation is necessary from methodologies of education and learning as Learning Service, the work collaborative between equal, the hybrid spaces in which there have capacity both the University and the proper School and the Society, learning across the art.. ..
