    Abstract

    The separate teacher education programs for regular and special education do not equip teachers with an integrated knowledge of the expected roles, functions and responsibilities to meet the diversity of learning needs in the classroom. The purpose of this paper is to argue for a new paradigm for the preparation of teachers particularly in the Malaysian context. The discussion will focus on the need for teacher educators of regular and special education at all levels of teacher education to develop a "whole-faculty approach" in facilitating an inclusive pre-service teacher education curriculum embedded across all discipline areas.
