Abstract

The purpose of this study is to examine the perceived components of effective teachers among teacher educators in research and teaching-oriented institutes in Israel.The currently prevailing notion of the effective teacher, reflecting the complexity of teaching, can be traced back in the attitudes of teacher educators in both institutes; and as such it can contribute to the ongoing debate regarding what makes a good teacher and the standards that can be used for teacher evaluation. Furthermore, the study's results can indicate some advantages and drawbacks of teacher education in the different institutes - thus adding valuable findings to questions regarding the desirable location of teacher education that can also be used for the evaluation of teacher education institutes.
