This chapter provides an overview of this edited volume while outlining the motivations underlying its development. The chapter highlights key themes that characterise English teacher preparation in Asia in the global world. This chapter shows how the chapters in this edited volume attempt to develop quality teacher preparation for English teachers in Asia through in-depth discussions of their distinctive topics. The aggregate of all the chapters in the volume points to the idea that the work of pre-service teacher preparation in the global world is beyond the transmission of teaching strategies, or things that can be used in the classroom. Rather, effective English teacher preparation generates more practical elements, deeper theory, richer reflection and integration of teacher preparation components. Finally, the chapter outlines the structure of the volume, summarising each individual chapter contained in this volume.
