Handbook of Research on Science Teacher Education
This groundbreaking handbook offers a contemporary and thorough review of research relating directly to the preparation, induction, and career long professional learning of K–12 science teachers.
Through critical and concise chapters, this volume provides essential insights into science teacher education that range from their learning as individuals to the programs that cultivate their knowledge and practices. Each chapter is a current review of research that depicts the area, and then points to empirically based conclusions or suggestions for science teacher educators or educational researchers. Issues associated with equity are embedded within each chapter. Drawing on the work of over one hundred contributors from across the globe, this handbook has 35 chapters that cover established, emergent, diverse, and pioneering areas of research, including:
Research methods and methodologies in science teacher education, including discussions of the purpose of science teacher education research and equitable perspectives;
Formal and informal teacher education programs that span from early childhood educators to the complexity of preparation, to the role of informal settings such as museums;
Continuous professional learning of science teachers that supports building cultural responsiveness and teacher leadership;
Core topics in science teacher education that focus on teacher knowledge, educative curricula, and working with all students; and
Emerging areas in science teacher education such as STEM education, global education, and identity development.
This comprehensive, in-depth text will be central to the work of science teacher educators, researchers in the field of science education, and all those who work closely with science teachers.
