Many Africans regard the twenty-first century as the epoch of the rebirth or reawakening of the African continent. An African Renaissance is currently taking shape in the form of various initiatives (such as the creation of the New Partnership for Africa's Development) and of the structuring of organisations (such as the African Union). Teacher education in Africa cannot continue as in the past while all these initiatives are being taken. An agenda for the transformation of teacher education programmes in Africa is, therefore, proposed. Respect for the dignity of the human being, which is a feature of African philosophical anthropology for as long as human memory serves, forms the cornerstone of this agenda.
