It is firmly believed that quality of teachers in educational institutions determines the eventual quality of education. The role of colleges of education in preparing high quality teachers, therefore, imperative. The teachers for the 21st century should have the ability to ensure cognitive and affective development of the students and create in them a value system which is a mixture of time- tested values, nationalistic and secular traditions and scientific temper. It is an arduous task and cannot be completed without high quality teacher educators. The professional development of teacher educators is, therefore, the need of the time.
