The chapter discusses the development of emancipatory online learning environments in quality teacher education. Under the uncertainty of a changing world caused by COVID-19 pandemic, teachers were required to adapt their teaching to online learning environments. Additionally, they had to learn how to design interactive and quality online learning environments. Against this backdrop, it is necessary to raise new questions about what quality teaching means in online learning environments. Discourses on quality teaching are commonly associated with teacher effectiveness. We argue, however, that quality teaching in teacher education also implies thinking about emancipatory pedagogical approaches in the development of (online) learning environments. In this sense, we explore emancipatory ways of understanding quality in online learning teacher education. First, we elaborate on quality debates in teacher education. Second, we focus on a specific dimension of quality teaching, that is, the development of (online) learning environments in teacher education. Third, we explore critical perspectives and emancipatory pedagogical approaches in teacher education. Last, we advise teaching strategies to create online learning environments with a focus on emancipatory pedagogical approaches. As a result, teaching strategies are suggested to connect quality online learning environments to emancipatory pedagogical approaches.
