Abstract
My purpose in this article is to contribute tothe conceptualization of the complex terrainthat often is indiscriminately termedmathematics teacher educator development.Because this terrain is largely unresearched, Iinterweave experience fragments of my owndevelopment as a mathematics teacher educator,and reflective analysis of those fragments, asa tool to abstract notions of generalimplication. In particular, I postulate aframework consisting of four stages ofdevelopment that are distinguished by thedomain of activities one's reflections mayfocus on and the nature of those reflections.Drawing on this framework, I presentimplications for mathematics teacher educatordevelopment and for further research.
