Enacting Literacy Pedagogies: A Collaborative Self-study by Teacher Educators in Physical Education and Science
In this article, the authors aimed to explore their pedagogical approaches for engaging teacher candidates in thinking about physical literacy and scientific literacy, respectively. The authors conclude that the collaborative self-study provided support and encouragement from a trusted colleague as well as a safe space to explore and reframe problematic aspects of practice. This self-study helped the authors to understand many conceptual similarities between the constructs of physical literacy and scientific literacy.

This article describes an initiative, Becoming Teacher Educators (BTE). BTE is a community specifically designed for doctoral students whose career goal is to become teacher educators. The findings reveal a very high level of satisfaction from the members of BTE. Members frequently commented that the ongoing support from the community was the reason that they continued to learn, grow and share. In addition, the BTE community has provided members with additional educational and professional opportunities outside the basic requirements of their graduate programmes.
