The “research-to-practice” relationship in mathematics education and in education more generally has been examined from a variety of perspectives. This research examined the research-to-practice relationship of mathematics teacher educators. Using the Mathematics Teacher Educator Instrument, developed for this project that addresses 11 dominant areas of research in the field, course syllabi were examined from Australia, Canada, England, Ireland, Italy, Malaysia, New Zealand, and the US. Our results suggest that major bodies of research are only moderately represented on course syllabi. Recognizably, the research areas identified on the instrument may nevertheless be enacted in mathematics teacher education classroom. Potential implications for mathematics teacher educators are discussed.
