This book seeks to not only articulate a vision for the profession through Standards for Teacher Educators but also provide a historical perspective of and explore the issues surrounding these standards. To accomplish this, the book establishes the history of teacher education as a discipline, defines who is a teacher educator, and provides a historical foundation for these standards. The reader is then presented with a set of mini-chapters designed to conceptualize a vision for teacher educators through each of the nine standards. Featuring voices of eductors in diverse fields, the third section expands thinking about the standards and how they may or may not apply to others. The final section provides viewpoints on Standards for Teacher Educators and the potential impact of such standards on the profession.
