Abstract

Becoming a mathematics teacher educator with responsibility for the education of trainee teachers is an under-researched area. This report looks at some key issues that effect new mathematics teacher educators, including how the role has changed, whether the emphasis is on ‘training’ (in consonance with UK Government terminology) or on education (and what the difference might be), about how people learn to become teachers, and about what is known about teacher educators and how people become teacher educators. The report argues that there are huge opportunities for researching all aspects of teacher education.
