Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingReport chapterCommissionedpeer-review

Research into ways of improving the initial education and continuing professional development of science teachers is closely related to both common and unique strands. The field is complex since science teachers teach at different educational levels, are often educated in different science subjects, and belong to various cultures, both educationally and socially. Section 1 presents a review of the
research literature across these dimensions and looks at the knowledge, skills and competences needed for teaching science, specific issues within science teacher education, and strategies for educating and developing science teachers.
