This volume is the product of the collaboration of participants at the Tenth Working Conference of the Canadian Association for Teacher Education that was held at Wilfrid Laurier University from October 24–26, 2019. The impetus for the working conference theme, Preparing Teachers as Curriculum Designers, emerged initially from the Teaching Effectiveness Framework (Friesen, 2009). This volume examines a variety of ways in which Canadian teacher educators are preparing teachers as curriculum designers. Chapters are organized according to three key areas: Designing Teacher Education Programs, Collaborative Professional Learning for Teacher Designers, and Designing in the Disciplines. The working conference dialogue and this publication aim to enhance and extend communication, collaboration, and critical analysis among Canadian teacher educators; it also seeks to contribute to research and practice that will inspire teachers and teacher educators to design learning that “engages students intellectually and academically ...[and that] is worthy of their time and attention, is personally relevant, and deeply connected to the world in which they live” (Friesen, 2009, p. 4).
