An Excerpt from the Editorial
Teacher education in Africa has undergone some transformation but the actual act of teaching has stagnated to the old apprenticeship model for both instruction and learning (Wolhuter 2006). In research that has permeated teacher training, teaching and teacher development in Africa, there has not been radical reviews to transform instruction and development. The decolonisation of the curriculum in Africa has been but fallacy and talk for African scholars that purport without pure social or natural scientific scrutiny of the critical role a curriculum, indigenous or western, plays in shaping knowledge and intellectual dialogue. Reform of teacher education and interventions in both the epistemological and methodological perspectives require grounded and research-based acknowledgements from teachers and those in the teaching fraternity teacher (Mukuka, Shumba & Mulenga 2021; Tesfamicael & Ayalew 2021).
