    In this paper, we examine some results from a series of interviews carried out by e-mail with an international group of statistics educators, all of them members of the International Association for Statistical Education (IASE). We asked for their ideas on the qualities of ‘good’ statistics teachers and ways in which they could develop as statistics educators. Follow-up questions explored their answers in depth. The responses highlight the diversity of views about recognising and developing good statistics teachers at tertiary level, an important consideration for any discussion on professional practice and certification in statistics education.
