    Abstrakt

    The concept of professional judgment and how to develop this within teacher education is the core focus in this paper. The aim of teacher education in Denmark is to qualify the students for a specific profession as teachers in the Folkeskole (the primary and lower secondary school). The teacher education is often criticized by students and politicians that theory and professional practice are not linked successfully and, consequently, the teacher education is often changed, recently brought about by competence-based curricula.
    It is therefore relevant to gain new knowledge about how teacher education may influence the professional judgment and influence the concrete practice. Since educating professional judgment is value-laden, and there are disagreements about the role of the school and the understanding of the ideal teacher, values and moral issues deserves serious attention. However the change in teacher education has brought about competence-based curricula for separate subjects to be evaluated, and it is to be discussed how this will affect the foundation for professional judgments. Is the sum of these partial competences adequate?
