Because both the subject matter and the methods of education in chemistry are always evolving, it is essential for chemistry instructors to participate in ongoing professional development opportunities if they wish to effectively teach the subject. The goal of the Professional Development of Chemistry Teachers (PDF) program is to ensure that chemistry education is always up to date while also making it more relevant, more academically effective, and more linked to the needs that are in place today.
The authors guide the reader through both practice and theory as they provide several instances and models of professional development for chemistry teachers. These examples and models range from pre-service preparation all the way up to continuous professional development. The authors address how we might maintain the lifelong learning of chemistry teachers while discussing the aspects that determine successful professional growth, such as availability, workload, and time restrictions.
This ebook enables researchers and educators to better understand teachers' roles in effective chemistry education and the importance of their continuing their professional development. It does this by providing a solid grounding in the relevant literature and drawing on a large number of examples from the authors' extensive experiences.
Anyone who is interested in bettering their chemistry teaching and the possible methods that could be utilized will find the booklet helpful as a starting position. This would be a wonderful read for someone who has just recently entered the chemistry teaching profession, or is thinking about entering it, as it would be beneficial to professional development. — Chromatographia, written by Dr. Philip Riby;
