This special issue of the Journal of Jewish Education marks a double milestone: one for the Journal itself, and one for the Mandel Teacher Educator Institute (MTEI), whose graduates are this issue’s authors. For the JJE, this is the first volume entirely devoted to practitioner research. For MTEI, this is the first publication of research done by graduates.

However, little research exists to explore the similarities and differences of TPACK between different teacher education programmes, within different countries or even different disciplines, especially in a secondary context. Using a self‐report online survey, this study sought to compare and contrast TPACK results from pre‐service teachers studying in secondary teacher education programmes in Australia and Israel.
