Preparation of teachers for the changing world: Teacher for the 21st century
University of Novi Sad, Faculty of Education, Sombor
This paper gives a theoretical overview of contemporary conceptions of teacher education in regard to contemporary needs. The rapid changes influence the education and demand from a teacher to be a person with many qualities: flexibility and adaptability, social and intercultural ability, responsibility and something of the leader's skills, which altogether plays a part in the process of preparation of these individuals for their initial education as well as for professional development. Therefore education of teachers for the 21st century has to be grounded in the concept of supporting learning and the learners and to be focused on the three value paradigms: values directed towards the student, values directed towards the identity of the teacher and values in the service of the profession and community. Four features of the personality of the future teachers are defined: to learn to think like a teacher, to learn to know like a teacher, to learn to feel like a teacher and to learn to act like a teacher. This paper emphasizes the importance of modern approaches and methods of working with future teachers underscoring the methods which abound in dialogs, practice, exchange of experience, critical thinking, associative learning, self-regulated learning, that is, instruction by "a student in focus".
