Teacher educators have a responsibility not only to ensure that teachers are responsive to the changing face of schooling, but also to model these new constructions of pedagogy and shared leadership within their Faculty. In order to do this there is a need for teacher educators to re-examine their own pedagogical and organizational structures. In the Faculty of Education under study, this need was conceptualised as a 'Faculty Pedagogical Framework', which emerged from an extensive research based review. This paper describes and analyses initiatives that have facilitated the implementation of selected sections of the Pedagogical Framework.
