    Teacher education in the Pacific is premised on the multiple realities and constraints of education in the Small Island Developing States (SIDS) of the Pacific region. This review is limited to Pacific scholarly writing from within the Pacific islands (PICs) in order to gauge the extent of Teacher Education (TE) Discourse taking place in the islands. Similar to other SIDS, PICs are heavily dependent on educational aid and are beleaguered with issues of smallness, islandness, remoteness and scatteredness. Differentially however, a regional approach to educational development and planning guides educational efforts in Forum member countries since 2001. This paper is prepared as a discussion paper to be used as an entry point into conversation about teacher education research and curriculum planning at the University of the South Pacific in Suva.
