In Finland, the Ministry of Education and Culture has nominated a Teacher Education Forum, consisting of 70 experts. The Forum was established to foster the development of teacher education and to prepare a development programme (TEDP) for teachers’ pre- and in-service education through co-configurative collaboration. The Forum members represent the Ministry of Education and Culture, universities and universities of applied sciences responsible for teacher education, providers of education (principals and teachers),student teachers and other relevant stakeholders. The Forum has discussed research outcomes related to teacher education and generated ideas for revising it at national and local meetings and through web-based brainstorming. A collaborative approach was used as it is known topositively influence the design and implementation and support teacher educators’ learning.
