Universitiesaroundtheworldhavesuspendedin-personteachingdueto the COVID-19 pandemic with lecturers required to teach their courses exclusively online. Although this situation is potentially challenging for lecturers of any disci- pline, for teacher educators, there is the added demand of needing to prepare stu- dents with the skills to teach in-person through on-line only modes. The chapter presents the experiences of two teacher educators, one in Hong Kong, engaged in English language teacher education, and one in the New York, engaged in general teacher education, as they adapted their courses to the new mode. It explores the challenges they faced as they themselves reconceptualised their practices for online modes of teaching, while presenting pedagogical solutions to the identified chal- lenges. It ends with lessons learned and considerations for teacher education beyond the pandemic.
