Abstract

Consider the proposition that teacher educators could overestimate what they can teach new teachers, while also underestimating their ability to provide appropriate conditions for them to learn about teaching. Such a proposition serves to shift the teacher education task (at both preser-vice and inservice levels) from one of delivering what has to be known by teachers to one of providing better conditions for learning about teaching.
