Emphasizing the importance of educating the future professoriate for the foreign language profession, this volume presents pedagogical and theoretical frameworks for graduate student development that respond to the changing landscape in the field. Specifically, the volume advances professional development models and practices that take into account the longitudinal nature of teacher education. In doing so, it questions existing educational paradigms that have not prepared graduate students adequately to address the challenges of becoming successful teacher-scholars. The volume provides the reader with specific examples from the field that explore the implications of the latest research on language use, literacy, instructional technology, and curriculum design for graduate student teacher development and gives concrete suggestions for implementing a sustainable and coherent approach to teacher education that addresses the complex components of foreign language study in higher education.
