This project aimed to develop a Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) curriculum guide and resources for teacher educators to nurture pre-service teachers’ PKM competencies and instructional design skills. Supporting the sustainable development of teachers as professionals in the knowledge society is a critical issue in teacher education. Developing a teacher education curriculum that could nurture pre-service teachers’ sustainable professional competencies becomes a significant research agenda and a practical issue to be addressed in teacher education. This project intended to adopt Dorsey’s PKM model to develop a curriculum guide and related resources that could be implemented in undergraduate and in-service teacher professional development programmes of our University for developing pre-service teachers’ PKM competencies. The elements of PKM tools application, e-leaming activities and collaborative action research were developed and injected to the experiment courses as an intervention to confirm the pre-service teachers’ PKM competency framework. The courses provided teachers with different degrees of opportunities to carry out instructional design, lesson implementation and reflection through e-leaming and collaborative action research activities. A Solomon four group quasi-experimental research design was used to collect data. The results were adopted to formulate a PKM curriculum guide as a reference for teacher education curriculum development.
