This research study investigated the similarities and differences between the jobs and professional orientations of preservice teacher educators (PSTEs) and inservice teacher educators (ISTEs).

A second part of the study evaluated the applicability to pre-service teacher educators of the self-study research model of professional learning that had been previously applied in the inservice community in the national INSTEP project.

The research was conducted as part of the Consolidation Phase of the Ministry of Education’s INSTEP project.

An overview of the national INSTEP project, its findings and related professional learning resources can be accessed on the INSTEP website.
