This paper reports phenomenographic research focused on studying the conceptions of modeling held by teacher educators. Data were collected through semi-structured interviews conducted face-to-face with twenty-four teacher educators working in three Chilean primary school teacher education programs. The analysis identified four categories of description, ranging from modeling as teaching pedagogical activities to modeling as developing teaching linked to the school classroom. Besides, four dimensions of variation were found, providing a more accurate picture of this teaching practice. The author recommends continuing the study on this topic for improving the teaching practices enacted by teacher educators.

The purpose of this study was to understand the process through which a teacher becomes a teacher educator, considering all of the associated variables both personal and professional. The findings reveal that the majority of the participants indicated that they did not receive any kind of support with respect to their professional induction, especially during their early years as teacher educators. Additionally, the findings suggest that the teacher educator’s approach to teaching will be different especially if the teacher educator works simultaneously in a school and in a teacher education program. Hence, teacher educators who work both in a school and teacher education programs teach based on their practical experience as a school teacher.
