The International Forum for Teacher Educator
Professional Development (InFo-TED)
“InFo-TED was established in 2013 by four experienced teacher educators and researchers from Belgium, England,
The Netherlands and Norway who decided that it was time to highlight the importance of teacher educators and the complexity of their professional learning. We could not wait for others to take
action. We had to be proactive and do it ourselves (Lunenberg, Murray, Smith, & Vanderlinde, 2016; Murray, Lunenberg, & Smith (2017). Today, InFo-TED has an active group of 20
researchers from seven European countries, i.e., Ireland, Scotland and Israel in addition to the named countries above, and external members from the USA and Australia. Info-TED disseminates
ideas, knowledge and research via our Summer Academies and website (for the underlying learning and design principles see here.
InFo-TED has developed a model and portal intended to support teacher educator development, and we conducted a Teacher Educator Summer Academy in 2018. The Academy has promoted in-depth
collaborative learning of experienced European teacher educators and contributed to capacity building of teacher educators across seven countries who can play a key role in teacher educator
development in their university, nationally and internationally” (InFo-TED White Paper, June, 2019).
