This is a reflection on the education of teachers, written by teacher educators who discuss features of their work and the challenges facing teacher education in the 1990s. The book invites the reader to attempt similar analyses of personal practice and development in their own teaching.; The book deals with the personal development of both new and experienced teacher educators, illustrating how strongly teacher educators are influenced by their visions and by the challenge to prove themselves in the university setting. In addition, the book examines the 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, a life-history approach to self-study, as well as a study of educative relationships with others, and the analysis of a personal return to the classroom. Finally, it takes a broader look at the professional development of teacher educators and offers a challenge to all teacher educators to consider the tension between rigour and relevance.

One second there was nothing there, and the next there was a small boat, big enough for about one person. I decided to get in the boat to hide. Just in case i hadn't gone as far as i thought and someone saw me. Just then, the boat started moving on it's own. What is going on? I though. Then i realized just how exhausted i was, and i layed down and let the waves rock me to sleep... (Thanks for reading!
