Continuous professional development of chemistry teachers is important for any effective chemistry teaching due to the developing nature of the subject matter and its instructional techniques. Professional Development of Chemistry Teachers; (PDF) intends to keep chemistry teaching up-to-date and to make it more meaningful; more academically effective; and better aligned to current requirements.
Presenting examples and models of professional development for chemistry teachers; from pre-service preparation through to unceasing professional development; the authors move the reader through practice and theory. The authors discuss factors that influence successful professional development; such as availability; workload; and time constraints; and consider how we keep the life-long learning of chemistry teachers.
With a concrete grounding in the literature and extracting on many examples from the authors’ rich experiences; this ebook enables researchers and educators to better understand teachers’ roles in effective chemistry education and the importance of their professional development.
The ebook would be useful as a starting position for anyone trying to improve their chemistry teaching and the potential techniques that could be adopted. For anybody who has recently joined the chemistry teaching profession; or is thinking of joining it; then this would be a good read for professional development. — Dr. Philip Riby; Chromatographia;
