Teacher Educators’ Professional Development in Flanders: Practitioner Research as a Promising Strategy
The purpose of this paper is to explore a Flemish intervention designed to support teacher educators’ professional development in general, and teacher educators’ role as researchers in particular. The results suggest that teacher educators who participated in the intervention express a stronger confidence towards conducting research, absorb more research into their own practice, and value the relevance of their role as a ‘researcher’ to improving their role as a ‘teacher educator’.

Measuring Teacher Educators’ Researcherly Disposition: Item Development and Scale Construction
This article presents a measurement instrument (TERDS) to measure teacher educators’ self-reported researcherly disposition throughout their working lives. The first part of the article reports the results of factor analysis (EFA and CFA), which suggest a four-factor structure of teacher educators’ researcherly disposition: (1) ‘ valuing research’, (2) ‘being a smart consumer of research’, (3) ‘ being able to conduct research’, and (4) ‘conducting research’. Goodness of fit estimates were calculated, indicating good fit. The authors conclude that by using the instrument to explore differences between several subgroups of teacher educators, this study enhances empirical understanding of a previously ‘undiscovered’ and ‘neglected’ professional group.
