Abstract

The teacher research movement has encouraged the development of practitioner research action-oriented and reflective studies among teachers and teacher educators alike. This study compares the profile of research conducted in the Israeli academic teacher colleges with that performed by university faculty. A content analysis of the 204 papers presented at the recent conference of the Israeli Association of Educational Research reveals, that teacher college research indeed focuses on teacher education issues and the relevant study populations. Yet, it does not depart from traditional university research in terms of types of studies and research methods. Dream and reality are therefore mixed in teacher education research.
