Supporting the initial training of science teachers in Hong Kong: An effective approach through web-based peer learning and sharing

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

This short paper reports the rationales and features of a web-based project which aims to create a comprehensive online platform to help the student -teachers to develop confidence and skills for the effective teaching of various science topics in schools through learning from and sharing with the peers. This online platform not only contains a data bank of video clips on some student-teachers’ exemplary teaching performance in a local educational context but also provides a combination of synchronous or asynchronous communication channels for participants to share ideas and feelings. The merits of using this website for training science teachers will be discussed together with some initial findings on the evaluation of this project.
