On this week's programme I discuss teacher education with Anja Swennen from the VU University, Amsterdam. I met up with her at the annual conference of the Association for Teacher Education of Europe in Gavle, Sweden in August 2018. Among the topics we discuss in this part of the interview are the following:

  • Jean Murray’s idea of first-order and second-order practitioner
  • The move from expert teacher to novice teacher educator
  • Recruiting a teacher educator
  • The curriculum for a course in Teacher Education
  • Preparing for registration as a Teacher Educator in the Netherlands
  • Identity of Teacher Educators (Subject specialist; pedagogue; a teacher in higher education; researcher; and teacher)
  • Teacher Educators and researching practice and research in schools
  • How history of education can help teachers understand their work
