Research Impact: It is important to learn what skills and knowledge teacher educators need and how they acquire such skills and knowledge throughout their career. Results revolve around (i) self-initiated professional development, (ii) the importance of experiencing professional development through collaboration with peers and colleagues, (iii) accessing opportunities to improve teacher education teaching practices, and (iv) the inextricable link between teaching and research and, consequently, the need to upskill in research skills. Discussion points that arise include the induction period, frustration and tension in navigation, haphazard professional
learning and learning with, and from, each other.
