The problem of disorientation in the learning of teacher education students during the COVID-19 pandemic was not only triggered face-to-face or online but also by the impact of the pandemic that had not been resolved. The prolonged pandemic has caused a severe problem in education: learning loss. The main characteristic is that students even read, and interest in learning is shallow. This condition is in line with data from the World Bank, which stated that the long pandemic in Indonesia impacted most students' learning motivation and interest in reading. Such conditions will seriously affect the quality of learning and the future of education, considering that the teacher education students are prospective teachers. This research aims to identify problems and solutions for teacher education affected by the pandemic. It relies on questionnaire data, interviews, and FGDs involving teachers, lecturers, and education experts. The results showed that the psychological problems experienced by students are triggered by non-pandemic factors, namely government policies regarding the implementation of education during a pandemic. For this reason, the problems are related to students' pedagogical and psychological factors. This research suggests that solutions to students' problems affected by the pandemic must involve various parties, especially the government and other stakeholders. Keywords: Learning motivation; Learning interests; Pandemic Covid-19; Problem & solution; Teacher education.
