Abstract - Teacher education curriculum is under a big reform in Finland. The new curriculum at the University of Helsinki takes effect on August 2017. This paper studies the foundations, vision, goals and structure of the curriculum after the reform. Research-based teacher education was chosen as the organizing theme for over 40 years ago and after the reform is still strongly relied on. But teachers’ profession is in change and new professional understanding fostering 21th century learning is needed. Future teachers work together as teams and are leaders of multi-professional collaboration. This requires new leadership and curriculum related skills, understanding of the digital pedagogy and new learning environments, which are now provided in the reformed new curricula.
