Abstract

This article discusses the curriculum re-design of the Chemistry Subject Knowledge Enhancement course in teacher education, in order to address issues raised by former students. It used a thematic approach and focused on pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) and the development of student-teachers’ teaching and learning skills. The main outcomes of the project were the deeper and more meaningful experience that student-teachers had during the 25-week period and the successful implementation of a longer school experience. The external examiner’s report was very positive and demonstrates that the efforts placed in this re-design has provided an invaluable experience for student-teachers as the enter their professional PGCE year.
