Teacher education consists of different types of knowledge that must be integrated, namely:
• Conceptual knowledge (foundations / theories/disciplinary knowledge) with the aim of acquiring knowledge specialised proficiency; and
• Contextual knowledge (aspects that endeavours to contextualise knowledge for occupational purposes, such as subject didactics and practical teaching) with the aim of acquiring task-specific proficiency.
The focus of this special issue is on research associated with the acquisition of contextual knowledge. Schools and schooling are continually changing. Therefore research is needed to assist teacher education providers in developing programmes suited to changing curricula and the contextual requirements of schools.
