Teachers Who Teach Teachers is a major contribution to an emerging literature in which teacher educators are beginning to explore the new challenges facing those who care about the quality of teaching in schools and in teacher education programmes. In this volume the contributors consider the personal development of both new and experienced teacher educators, illustrating just how strongly teacher educators are influenced by their visions and by the challenge to prove themselves in the university setting. They look at ways in which teacher educators have acted to promote their own professional development and study their own practices, including writing as a tool for reflection. Finally the contributors take a broader look at the professional development of teacher educators and the challenge to all teacher educators to consider the tension between rigour and relevance.
