The focus of this paper is collaboration in teacher education in East and southern Africa, with particular emphasis on the latter. A preliminary review suggests that the region has a history of collaboration, especially in education, much of it derived from the colonial experience. The potential benefits of individuals, institutions and governments working together in teacher education are identified. Consideration is then given to specific areas of teacher education that would benefit from approaches based on joint strategies and partnerships. Recommendations are made for establishing a regional organization aimed at furthering regional collaboration in teacher education in tertiary institutions.
