Abstract

In this chapter the professional identity of the subject discipline teacher educator is examined. The subject discipline teacher educator is a subject specialist working in initial teacher education, e.g. a physics lecturer teaching on an initial teacher education science course. While the majority of the subject discipline teacher educators in this study are non-traditional, having no experience of working in schools, being a teacher educator is important to their professional identity due to their long-term professional commitment to initial teacher education. This research gives voice to a non-traditional group of teacher educators, an absent voice from the discourse of teacher education.
