Description: Teacher Education Quarterly is a peer-reviewed journal (double blind) dedicated to advancing knowledge and research on the work of teacher education researchers and practitioners.  We seek manuscripts that link research to practice, with an eye toward improving pre-service and in-service teacher education.  Preference is given to well-designed empirical studies whose conclusions broadly inform teacher professional development, although we are also interested in publishing outstanding policy analyses.


Topics: Among the topics well-suited for the Teacher Education Quarterly are:

  • Preparation of teachers in a standards-based era
  • Implications of common core standards for teacher education, teacher development, and teacher assessment.
  • Reform in teacher education
  • Teacher education for meeting the needs of diverse ethnic and language populations
  • Innovative approaches to teacher education
  • Assessment of teacher pedagogical knowledge and abilities
  • Teacher education and digital technology
  • Teacher education in the arts; art-based approaches to teacher education
  • Field supervision in teacher education
  • Teacher education and critical pedagogy
  • Narrative research in teacher education
  • Inquiry-oriented teacher education
  • Recruitment and retention of underrepresented teachers and teacher educators
  • Teacher education in global contexts


Handling of Manuscripts:  Manuscripts are accepted and reviewed year-round. We do not publish “themed” issues. Manuscripts that do not meet minimum criteria are returned to the authors within 20 days of receipt
