Abstract [en]

Educational realities, being based on human relations and on mutual influences, bear the potential to contain many ethical aspects, in which questions about ‘right’ and wrong’ are raised. Teachers struggle everyday to handle situations, solve problems and cope with dilemmas in the most appropriate way according to certain (and sometimes contradictory) norms, values and actions. In this context teacher educators have an important role in preparing future teachers to deal with the complexity of the profession. Teacher educators also have to handle ethical issues connected to the teacher education program itself.

The central issue of the chapter is the range of ethical dilemmas framing teaching and learning in the context of teacher education. Ethical aspects of cheating, dishonesty and plagiarism in higher education are discussed as well as ethical dilemmas connected to teacher educators’ relations to field-based studies, to students and to colleagues. The development of an ethical competence, i.e. to the ability to discover, analyze and tackle ethical dimensions in teaching and learning, is crucial for teacher educators, teacher students and teachers in general. How to train teacher students to develop an ethical competence is central in the chapter, as well as the development of professional codes of conducts for teacher educators. How these professional codes could serve as key components in the process of professionalisation of teacher educators is discussed.
