I will first look at the context of Teacher Education and then trace the trends in QA in tertiary education over the past decade. and examine some ways in which a culture of quality can be promoted within teacher education institutions. This will then lead to a discussion of one emerging area, OER and the implications that this has for QA. Finally, I will share with you some of the ways in which COL has responded to the challenges of QA and provided support to Member States.
