"This paper presents the results of an interview study of student teachersâ€™ conceptions of theory and practice in teacher education. Student teachers often complain that theory in teacher education is not relevant to practice. This problem has probably grown worse during the last decades with the enhanced academic ambitions of many teacher training programs. However student teachersâ€™ re-ports about the problem are often expressed in clichĂ©s that are difficult for teacher training institu-tions to act upon. The purpose of this project has been to acquire a more precise and subtle under-standing of the studentsâ€™ conceptions and their rationales. The empirical material of the project is qualitative group interviews with 34 students from five Danish teacher training colleges. The re-sults show that student teachers view theory as a product of other personsâ€™ work and theorizing is not viewed as anything they do or can do themselves. Student teachers want primarily to learn to teach, not to reflect on teaching and therefore they want theories to be useful and to be â€™tool-likeâ€™. Teacher students do not want recipes or manuals; they want freedom to develop their own way of teaching."
