Abstract: Digital technologies have become commonplace in schools and the effective integration of these technologies places new demands on both teachers and teacher preparation programs. The teaching and modeling of technology use as part of the teaching and learning process requires sophisticated and multifaceted competencies on the part of teacher educators. This research explored teacher educators’ perceptions of a recently published set of Teacher Educator Technology Competencies (TETCs) (Foulger, T. S., Graziano, K. J., Schmidt-Crawford, D., & Slykhuis, D. A. (2017). Teacher educator technology competencies. Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, 25(4), 413-448). A multi-institution, international research team constructed and disseminated an anonymous online mixed-methods survey that collected data related to teacher educators’ perceptions of their own technology competencies and contextual factors affecting their competency development. 336 teacher educators responded to the survey. We present preliminary findings and discuss their significance for the teacher education field.
