Liu, Yu-Zhen
Effective education is achieved through the efforts of a team of high-quality teachers. Teacher quality is determined by the quality of their teacher educators. Teachers' colleges have the responsibility to construct a high-quality teaching team to train prospective teachers who are creative, adaptable, and able to help shape the future. Construction of a strong team requires strict rules and regulations, clear requirements for teachers in teaching and scientific research, and concern for their professional progress, social welfare, and well-being. Tianjin Normal University is the only key teacher training university in Tianjin, China. It focuses on training secondary teachers, college teachers, and special personnel, and it is a center for scientific research in basic education. It provides an example of a school that is training teachers and teacher educators for the future. To meet the requirements of the new millennium, it is necessary to construct a qualified team of teacher educators with good moral character and professional ethics, rich creativity, strong teaching and research ability, great concern for the interests of teacher education, and excellent teaching skills and pedagogical knowledge (enhanced through professional training).
