As part of a larger project aiming to develop a framework of competencies for mathematics teacher educators by utilizing a Delphi approach, the purpose of this study was to investigate what a group of experts think about the competencies that mathematics teacher educators should possess. The data were collected in a workshop with 10 experts coming from mathematics teacher education programs and non-governmental organizations. Findings revealed a set of competencies about the works and identities of university-based mathematics teacher education faculty as teachers, researchers, and community leaders.
