This project aims to develop a Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) curriculum guide and resources to teacher educators for nurturing 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 teacher sustainable professional competencies becomes a significant research agenda and a practical issue to be addressed in teacher education. This project intends to adopt Dorsey’s PKM model to develop a curriculum guide and related resources that could be implemented in BEd programme of our Institute for developing pre-service teachers’ PKM competencies. The elements of PKM tools application, e-learning activities and collaborative action research will be developed and injected to the experiment courses (at least 8 courses from subject major, professional study, field experience and language courses) as an intervention to confirm the pre-service teachers’ PKM competency framework. The courses provide pre-service teachers with different degree of opportunities to carry out instructional design, lesson implementation and reflection through e-learning and collaborative action research activities. A Solomon four group quasi-experimental research design will be used to collect data from at least 16 courses from BEd Programme of pre-service teachers of our Institute. The results will be adopted to formulate a PKM curriculum guide as a reference for teacher education curriculum development.
