The purpose of this article is to examine how teacher educators in Israel perceive current practices in teacher education. The authors designed a questionnaire to determine what teacher educators consider the basic components of teacher education and what they think about teacher education as practiced in their teaching institutions. The authors also asked them to provide metaphors that describe teacher education.
