This chapter examines Indonesiaâ€™s English language teacher education, which has seen significant changes in the past few years. The chapter describes stakeholders in teacher education, covering aspects such as pre-service teacher education streams, curriculum, and management of professional development (PD). It also examines the development and implementation of teacher education policies in the past fifteen years. Further, the chapter discusses notable innovations revolving in five areas of interest: (1) the movement to employ post-methods teacher education; (2) the rise of digital technologies; and (3) the development of character building through identity, spirituality, and criticality in teacher education. The chapter also examines: (4) a shift to incorporating translanguaging and (5) pluricentric approaches to English into teacher education. The chapter argues that there is an apparent disconnect between the academic work of Indonesian scholars and the policies on teacher education which the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology is developing. Finally, the chapter outlines directions for future research.
