This chapter examines how economic teacher education in South Africa and Germany must develop in terms of curriculum and pedagogy in order to address contemporary global challenges in multicultural contexts. The chapter focusses on economic teacher education but draws on economic content knowledge in higher education curricula, considering the two broad fields of microeconomics and macroeconomics, on which the discipline of economics is built. Drawing on the South African and German schooling contexts, the chapter presents an overview of the literature and theoretical constructs. It discusses the curriculum of economic teacher education and the role of the economics teacher.
