The topic of this study is pedagogical research at Norwegian teacher education schools. The research question we ask is: How should, according to educationists, pedagogical research in teacher education be perceived? The purpose of the study is to provide a picture of the educationists’ opinions of problem areas and questions regarding pedagogical research. To map this, we use an exploratory mixed method, with a qualitative preliminary study and a quantitative main study. The theoretical framework describes the main features of the institutional development and perceptions of Norwegian pedagogical research and appears as a background for the analysis and discussion. The findings show individual differences among the educationists of our study concerning perceptions of pedagogy as a research field. We found no systematic variation between different educational institutions or background variables (gender, teaching or research experience). This implicates a discussion of pedagogic as research area in order to strengthen pedagogic as a scientific discipline.
