Abstract

This paper provides a review on the attributes expected of a quality teacher in the training of the top 20 universities in the world particularly in teaching and learning. The attributes, namely: values, skills and knowledge (V, S, K) were benchmarked against the VSK generated from provisional MalaysianBased Teaching and Learning Guiding Principles (MBTLGP) developed by Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris (UPSI), Malaysia. The findings indicated that there are commonalities and differences of V, S, K by both MBTLGP and the top 20 universities in preparing a quality teacher in their teacher education programmes. The MBTLGP does cover all the V, S, K indicated in the synthesised VSK of the top 20 universities.
